Understanding Aggression: Coping with Aggressive Behavior in the Classroom

This course is about violence in America, about the aggression in our schools, classrooms, streets, homes, and elsewhere. The course speaks to the hate, the fights, the anger, the crimes committed and the victims in our schools and society. It is a course about students, children, teenagers, adults, and neighbors—all of us. The course will consider the many forms of aggression, both criminal and otherwise; its costs and motivation; its perpetrators and targets; its likely and unlikely locations; its impact on our schools and children; and, most importantly, its several causes and promising solutions. Ideal for elementary, middle, and high school instructors.
