A collection of articles curated by the Center for Research on Learning and Teaching (CRLT) at the University of Michigan on dealing with incivility in the college classroom. The CRLT defines classroom incivility as “any action that interferes with a harmonious and cooperative learning atmosphere in the classroom. Uncivil student behavior not only disrupts and negatively effects the overall learning environment for students but also contributes to instructors’ stress and discontent.”
The articles presented here describe forms of classroom incivility and ways to reduce disruptive behavior in the college classroom.
