Comparison of disruptive behaviours in South Australian LOTE and mainstream primary school classrooms
The frequencies of disruptive behaviours in students were compared between their respective LOTE (German) and mainstream primary school classrooms. Forty-nine students aged between nine and twelve, from years four to seven, were observed during the study. The overall frequency of disruptive behaviours in German classes was found to be significantly higher than in mainstream classes. Three of the four observed behaviours were also found to be more frequent in German classes. Some suggestions for improving teaching practive and future research have been made.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
