Preventing Disruptive Behavior in the Classroom

You may be able to mitigate behavioral situations by establishing certain norms at the beginning of the class. 

  • Use your syllabus to set classroom behavioral expectations (include links to Student Code of Conduct and Procedures and netiquette rules).
  • Outline the process of how disruptive behavior will be addressed.
  • Outline consequences of disruptive behavior.
  • Identify and address the disruptive behavior.  Do not be confused with the student’s right to express his/her differing opinions.
