The purposes of this article are: (a) to identify the different types of student misbehaviour in Physical Education classes and (b) to relate these types of misbehaviour to the anger reactions (and their degrees of intensity) of five physical education teachers in preferential educational attention schools (CPEA) in Barcelona, Spain. The results of the analysis of fifty class sessions show that: (a) four of the five teachers felt “low intensity” anger in most of the incidents; (b) what caused the highest levels of anger was student non-participation, although such intensity varied according the type of misbehaviour; and (c) the perception of the “level of harm” and “purposeful character” of the misbehaviour explain up to 51% of the variation of the level of intensity of the emotional responses of these teachers.
