Abstract: Since the primary aim of every teacher is to create and maintain positive learning environment for learners, itis logical to admit that the teacher must have in-depth knowledge and skillswhich address disciplinary issues and educational needs especially in the classroom. It was on account of this that thisstudy was undertaken to assess the level of practice of behaviour modification technique in the classroom by pre-serviceteacher interns using a cross-sectional survey design. Data collected from 360respondents at Colleges of Education in Ghana and analyzed using a three-point Likert-type scale questionnaire, reveal that the pre-service teacher interns do not regularly practicemost of the behaviour modificationtechniques expected to be used for effective classroom management during theinternship programme. The findings furthershowed no significant differences between male and female respondents in theirpractice of behaviour modification techniques. In like manner, it was  largely evident, that the programme of study forthe pre-service teacher interns had no significant effect on their practice ofbehaviour modification techniques. It is in the light of the above findings that this study makes a helpfulrecommendation to strengthen teacher training institutions in addressing suchdeficiencies in the formation programme in Ghana.
