Classroom Power Struggles: How to Avoid, Resolve and Mitigate Their Impact

Join Julia Thompson to discuss the disruptions caused by class clowns and persistent attention-seekers to the frustrating problems caused by students who are not focused on academic success, power struggles can disrupt even the most carefully planned instruction. Because of the complex nature of this ubiquitous problem, educators often find it one of the most difficult classroom management issues to resolve successfully.
