1. What would you do if a student was disruptive during a lesson? 2. How would you adjust curriculum to be inclusive of students with special needs? 3. What kind of warm-up exercises would you assign at the beginning of each class?

1 Answers

1. I said I would write the disruptive student's name on the board, with one check next to the name. I would remind the student that if he/she gets two more checks, I will send him/her to the Principal's Office. If the student then called me a name or was even more disruptive, I would send him/her to the office immediately, and follow up with a written description of the event. 2. One way to be inclusive is to assign group projects that require 4 or 5 kinds of information -- written, graphic, computer-generated, and a presentation before the class. This naturally provides avenues of achievement for kids who have different talents and limits -- for example, kids with ADD do better with hands-on projects and computer research. Traditional learning style kids enjoy writing assignments and giving speeches or talks before the class. 3. Studies show giving small warm-ups to kids as they come in helps them to settle in and listen. I like to have a few questions on the board, to be copied and answered during class. then they turn these in at end of class. This piques their curiosity about the day's lesson, guides their focus in class to get the answers, and gives me an easily achieved extra grade to boost scores. Less

How would you handle classroom management?

1 Answers

I said that I feel it is the responsibility of the classroom teacher to create an environment where students feel comfortable. I also said that I felt that education was a parent/teacher partnership and parents should be contacted if student conferences are ineffective. Sending a student to an administrator for classroom management issues should be the last resort. Less

How I would handle a student who was acting up.

4 Answers

I said I would be aware of the schools policy on discipline prior to starting. That there always has to be a bottom line, like sending them to the principle. I would try and handle it within the classroom if possible and give the student a chance to behave well. Less

I would try to resolve the issue within the classroom first. I would approach the learner without him or her know and drop down to his or her level of height and ask them in a conversational tone if he or she thought that his or her behaviour was appropriate during lesson time. I would give the learner a warning if the learner persist the next step would be him or her writing lines if the matter escalates I would send the learner to the headmaster. Less

What would you do if a student started swearing at you during class?

2 Answers

remind the student that they are using street language not school language and they know the difference Less

Usually for a student to escalate at that point there has to be some kind of frustration caused by either content or other outside factors. I am not there to get personally offended by the swears, I know they are let out to express the frustration and anger. I would really really try to assess that situation and leave any of my feelings out. I see that you are very angry and upset at this time, and I wouldn't want to add to more to those feelings. Could we please step outside the classroom to have a quick talk? If the students agrees to come in the hallway by the classroom door, I'd ask: "I know you are mad right now. And I really want to help you if I can. What is going on? What are you feeling? Or I apologize if I did anything or contributed to this situation. How can we work through this? What can I do to help you though this? Your input is really important in my classroom. I really need you in class. Can we make it work? Less

I had a very similar experience. The recruiter was lovely and we interviewed two e on the phone. The 3.5 hr. in person was a different story. It felt like they were just trying to tear me down. They were like hardened icicles in their approach to the interview. It was very militant. No warmth at all. Less

What do you do when a student is disrespectful and/or disrupting your class.

2 Answers

Teach me a lesson on something. Go. (HR rep)

When a student is disrespectful or disruptive in my class, I remind them of the rules that they agreed to on the first day of class. I tell them which rule they have violated and that they are now subject to the penalty attached to violating that rule. The penalties would range from points deducted from their class participation score to detention. In rare cases, if violence is involved, they would be sent to the principal's office for evaluation.
