The Teacher and the Anxious Child.
Sieber, Joan E.; Crockenberg, Susan Belden
This paper is intended primarily for elementary school teachers. It summarizes what is known about classroom anxiety and how teachers can reduce this anxiety and its detrimental effects. This is a nontechnical literature review designed to give advice to practitioners. The paper describes kinds of anxiety and outlines three different methods of coping with it: (1) altering the situation, (2) altering the students' emotional responses to anxiety provoking situations, and (3) strengthening the cognitive processes that are adversely affected by anxiety. Methods of diagnosing anxiety and applying treatments are specified. (Author)
