Two trait-based dimensions of coping relevant to boredom, namely approach- versus avoidance-orientated and cognitive- versus behavior-orientated coping, were assessed in a self-report questionnaire administered to 537 students. Additionally, 79 of the study participants completed a structured, two-week, state-based assessment administered via the experience sampling method. Analyses showed participants to be differentiated based on two overarching approaches to coping with boredom, namely Reappraisers who are cognitive-approach orientated, and Evaders who prefer behavioral-avoidance strategies. The cognitive-approach appears to be most beneficial, showing negative relations to state-based boredom levels. Implications for interventions promoting the use of cognitive-approach strategies for dealing with boredom in the classroom are discussed.</dcterms:abstract> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <dc:creator>Nett, Ulrike</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Götz, Thomas</dc:creator> <dcterms:title>Coping With Boredom in School : An Experience Sampling Analysis</dcterms:title> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <dc:contributor>Daschmann, Elena</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Wimmer, Birgit</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Hall, Nathan C.</dc:contributor> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2011-05-09T08:47:55Z</dcterms:available> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dcterms:issued>2010</dcterms:issued> <dc:creator>Hall, Nathan C.</dc:creator> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
