Two trait-based dimensions of coping relevant to boredom were considered, namely approach – versus avoidance-oriented and cognitively – versus behaviorally-oriented coping strategies. The two dimensions were assessed in a self-report questionnaire administered to 537 grade 11 students (55.3% female, Mage = 17.15 years). Additionally, 79 of these participants completed state-based boredom-related coping measures over a 2-week period using an experience sampling method. Analyses of the trait measures suggested that two contrasting, broad approaches characterized participants' strategies for coping with boredom, namely a cognitive-approach orientation and a behavioral-avoidance orientation. In both the trait- and state-based analyses, the cognitive-approach orientation was associated with lower levels of boredom. Implications for interventions promoting the use of cognitive-approach strategies for dealing with boredom in the classroom are discussed.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:creator>Nett, Ulrike</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Hall, Nathan</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Nett, Ulrike</dc:contributor> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:issued>2011</dcterms:issued> <dc:creator>Götz, Thomas</dc:creator> <dcterms:title>Coping with boredom in school : an experience sampling perspective</dcterms:title> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2012-06-20T08:53:04Z</dcterms:available> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2012-06-20T08:53:04Z</dc:date> <dc:contributor>Götz, Thomas</dc:contributor> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:bibliographicCitation>Contemporary Educational Psychology ; 36 (2011), 1. - S. 49-59</dcterms:bibliographicCitation> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource=""/> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
