Post: Week 2 (2/5-2/9) Dealing With Behavioral Issues

We are closing in finishing Week 2 of Spring 2018. By now, I hope everyone is settling into their classes and ready to power through the next few months. The topic we are focusing on today is dealing with behavioral issues in the classroom.  As the semester goes on, you get to know everyone’s personalities. Do you have students more focused on their electronics than paying attention to the lectures and discussions going on in the classroom? Do you have students who may be confrontational or disrupt the flow of the classroom? Billie Hera, a lecturer in English at the University of Texas, presents a ProfHacker series on disruptive students. In this article, Hera speaks on a few different categories:

The Entitled Student

-The Chatty Student

-The Bullies

The Disrespecters

(want to read the entire series? click here)

These discussions give scenarios and professors give their responses. How do you deal with some of these issues in the classroom? Feel free to comment below!
