Angry and Aggressive Students
Larson, Jim
Education Digest: Essential Readings Condensed for Quick Review, v73 n7 p48-52 Mar 2008
Students who engage in physical aggression in school present a serious challenge to maintaining a safe and supportive learning environment. Unlike other forms of student aggression, fighting is explicit, is violent, and demands attention. A fight between students in a classroom, hallway, or the lunchroom brings every other activity to a halt and draws fellow students and concerned adults toward the violence. The disruption is total, the after-effects lingering, and the potential for serious injury very real. This article presents several strategies for preventing and responding to student anger and aggression.
