Six Causes of Resistance to Learning

We continue our theme of classroom management by offering six causes of resistance to learning. The causes may offer insight into a student whose classroom behavior is inappropriate.

The entire article, brought to us by Inside the School Update, can be read by clicking here. In brief, the six causes are:

  • Poor self image as a learner.
  • Fear of the unknown.
  • Disjunction between learning and teaching styles.
  • Apparent irrelevance of the learning activity.
  • Inappropriate level of required learning.
  • Students' dislike of the instructor.
