Siedel, Shannon B.; Tanner, Kimberly D.
CBE - Life Sciences Education, v12 n4 586-595 Dec 2013
In this article, the author's attempt to provide an overview of the types of student resistance one might encounter in a classroom, as well as share hypotheses from other disciplines about the potential origins of student resistance. In addition, they offer examples of classroom strategies that have been proposed as potentially useful for either preventing student resistance from happening altogether or addressing student resistance after it occurs, some of which align well with findings from research on the origins of student resistance. Finally, the author's explore how ready the field of student resistance may be for research study, particularly in undergraduate biology education.
