Cory, Rebecca C.
MetadataShow full item record
Student behavior in the adult classroom and on college and university campuses is rarely treated in a proactive way (Ragle & Paine, 2009). There is an underlying assumption that students know how to behave in the classroom and co-curricular settings. Student misbehavior is then treated in punitive ways, punishing students, using progressive discipline. This chapter includes discussions on prevention strategies, responses, and legal and ethical considerations of behavior management with the goal of helping academic leaders, faculty members, and others to consider how they can reduce student disruption.
