Establishing and Maintaining a Civil Classroom
A Collaboration with Community Standards, the Disability Resource Center, and Student CARE Services

Tuesday, January 31, 3:00-4:30pm
ITLAL Underground (LI-B69)

Many of us struggle with student behaviors that we find confusing, irritating, or downright rude—like students who routinely come to class late and/or leave early, spend the entire class text-messaging, or simply won’t engage with you or the course material in a meaningful way. In some cases, a student’s behavior is so far out of bounds that it disrupts the entire classroom. This workshop will explore some of the causes of student incivility and demonstrate strategies for avoiding problems. We will also consider what to do when you think a student’s behavior signals a deeper problem. You will leave with a set of tools to help you encourage a civil classroom and an understanding of the support that’s available to you when the best laid plans go awry.
