Engaging Difficult Students
Monday, October 8, 2018
4:00 pm – 6:50 pm
Honnold/Mudd Library – Keck 2
This workshop deconstructs the notion of “difficult” learners – are they rude and rebellious, loud and lackadaisical, disrespectful and disruptive? They can also be moody and marginalized or silent and sullen. Also difficult are introverted and introspective students, as are the creative ones. Over-confident and under-confident students are equally difficult. We then explore principles in working with this diversity in behavior to give you the best chance of diffusing troubling patterns of interaction and to proactively invite engagement.
