    Hello all,
    My name is Alicia Mullins. I am currently in the early childhood education program at Arizona State University, working towards my bachelors. In one of my course I have to write a research paper. My research question is, "What are the different discipline and guidance strategies used in a preschool classroom?" I have already done observations in various preschool classrooms, and I need to collect more data. Since this the Preschool forum, I am hoping that I can get feedback from at least 10 Preschool teachers. You efforts with helping me with my research paper would be greatly appreciated. Please answer the questions listed below. They are all short answers, except one question that I ask you to list the different guidance and discipline strategies that you use. If you use a specific behavior management plan, please list this as well. Thank you in advance for all of your help! :)

    Best Regards,
    Alicia Mullins

    Mrs. Levin's, thank you for your reply. I wanted to advise you that one of my classmate was doing her research on Kindergarten classroom rules. She actually found your web page, and used it as one of her resources for her paper. She even forwarded it to me incase it would be helpful for my research. I think that it is a small world that you happen to reply to me research survey. Thank you again, and your web site has me wanting to do further research on the Love & Logic approach.

    Best Wishes,
    Alicia Mullins
