Managing the College Classroom: Perspectives from an Introvert and an Extrovert
Braden, Stephen W.; Smith, Deborah N.
College Quarterly, v9 n1 Win 2006
One of the biggest challenges facing college instructors in the 21st century is classroom misbehavior. The authors propose that how one handles classroom incivility is a matter of personality type. One of the authors is an extrovert; the other an introvert. The authors discuss personality theory, general classroom management, how to identify student problems, ascertain the cause of student problems and provide an appropriate solution depending upon one's personality type. With the right goals, preparation and strategies all types of professors can effectively deal with disruptive students.
