Separation of trouble-maker(s) from support group in class. Rebellious, disorderly, digressive students feed on other students' rebellion and disorderliness. Groupthink is appropriate when conducive to attentive, deferential behavior, inappropriate when destructive of that behavior. Never isolate a well-adjusted groupthinker; s/he will only become confused, may even be traumatized out of appropriate behavior patterns. Treat full-scale problem with authoritotropin, directalis, obediaflavin bromide, pedagorine, and/or reprobamate tablets; supplement as needed with ridicule or snubbing. Extreme cases will yield only to the Wangensteen.
