Increasing Class Participation in Social Phobic Students
Miranda, Michael V.
Community College Enterprise, v14 n1 p9-23 Spr 2008
The "Find Your Classroom Voice Program" has been offered at Kingsborough Community College for the past three years. Its purpose is to enable students who are consistently inactive in class discussions (and who might be called "classroom-specific social phobic") to develop the ability to take a more active role in the classroom. With its success, the Program has attracted the attention of faculty members who have expressed interest in learning how to conduct the Program in their own classes. The Program's originator, with nearly two decades of experience as a practicing psychologist, has developed a five-session training program for interested faculty members. In the following article, he presents that training program along with the psychological principles upon which the "Find Your Classroom Voice Program" is based.
