The sample of the study consists of a total of 55 pre-service teachers, 30 of whom are male and 25 of whom are female. The data of the study were obtained through a questionnaire developed by the researchers. The questionnaire includes 6 open-ended questions to identify the classroom discipline problems faced by science teachers in the classroom where prospective teachers are observers. The participants were given approximately 20 minutes to complete the questionnaire. Science teacher candidates also completed the questionnaire within the specified time. The data obtained from the questionnaire were subjected to descriptive and content analysis. The data obtained from prospective teachers are presented in the findings section in a purposeful and detailed manner. 2 faculty members and 2 teachers created the themes and codes for each question by jointly evaluating the answers given by the preservice teachers to the questionnaire.
