Work Avoidance as a Manifestation of Hostility, Helplessness, and Boredom.
Jarvis, Sharon; Seifert, Tim
Alberta Journal of Educational Research, v48 n2 p174-87 Sum 2002
A study examining causes of work avoidance interviewed 20 work-avoidant students in grades 6 and 7 from 3 schools in Newfoundland (Canada). Students withdrew effort because they were bored, as an expression of hostility toward the teacher, or because of feelings of helplessness. Implications for teacher practice and school policies are discussed. (Contains 54 references.) (TD)
