Anger Management examines strategies and techniques for modifying behavior in the classroom. This course details the nine types of faulty assumptions students make that can lead to anger. It also identifies negative communication behaviors that contribute to anger and provides some suggestions to reduce anger and help students stay focused on their education. As part of the Pearson Instructor Education library of courses, Anger Management is designed to support your instructors in their teaching efforts and, as a result, positively impact student retention. We recognize many instructors come to the school arena with much expertise, but little teaching experience. For that reason, the courses in this library focus on those foundational presentation and teaching skills necessary to be effective.
