Press Theory

Every educator has experienced one or more students disrupting class by talking loudly, interrupting classmates, and/or moving their bodies. Oftentimes, we direct those students to sit down, be quiet, or send them to the office to be disciplined. What we fail to recognize is that that type of behavior is categorically linked to their environment. This workshop explores the science of why young people disrupt class, and how art can be a conduit to help educators meet these Maslovian needs.
