Teaching Students about Performance Anxiety: The Scratch Pad Pop-Up Model
Robertson, Donald U.; Eisensmith, Kevin E.
Music Educators Journal, v97 n2 p31-35 Dec 2010
Performance anxiety is a common problem for many students and an issue that educators often address. This article examines a model of performance anxiety based on working memory and attentional processes. The model is described in a way that is easily understood by students of all ages. It is then used to classify methods of reducing performance anxiety and explaining how they work. Practical exercises for helping students understand performance anxiety and cope with it are presented. (Contains 3 figures and 11 notes.)
