Why Do Certain Students Disrupt Classroom Instruction?
Before we begin to explore the topic of managing student behavior, it seems necessary to first understand the reasons for classroom disruptive behavior. That is, if we have a sound theory explaining why certain students disrupt classroom instruction, we can more effectively manage and control their behavior. Therefore, before we share a multi-dimensional theory on students disruptive behavior, I’d like to pose this question to you, our readers:
What is your theory about why some students misbehave in school?
I invite you to share your thoughts on this question, and I will publish some of them on this blog.
On the next post we will describe the first component of a three dimensional approach to understanding student disruptive behavior: The Group and Community Building Dimension.
