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. These behaviors are particularly frustrating when they become distracting to other students or disrupt the work of the class. In this session, we will examine research on factors that affect student behavior in the classroom and consider strategies for responding to and, most importantly, for preventing those behaviors. You will leave with a set of tools to help you create a positive, civil classroom and an understanding of how to respond when the best laid plans go awry.
