Improprieties in Teaching And Learning

ByJOHN M. BRAXTON

In this chapter, I describe the various forms of student classroom incivilities and faculty teaching norm violations and their eects on students. Bertram Gallant and Kalichman, in chapter 3, assert that academic misconduct occurs within a system comprising four levels, ranging from the individual to the level of society. Student classroom incivilities and faculty teaching norm violations also transpire within such a system. In this chapter, I delineate some possible forces within this system that lead to or constrain such classroom improprieties. In the last section of this chapter, I oer some suggestions for addressing classroom improprieties.
