What is a situation in which you have been challenged by a student and how did you meet that challenge and learn from it for future lessons

2 Answers

I had a student who would keep talking even when she wasn’t supposed to. I tried changing her seat frequently, talking to her parents then finally settled on having her take a paper and write out what’s on her mind in the back of the room which seemed most effective. I also found that letting her help with tasks worked Less

I talked about a student with autism I had that used to spit on me and other paras every time we tried to get him to learn and do work. I explained the many tactics we came up with and tried as a team and the many ways I tried on my own to get his behavior to change. Until we finally came up with a tactic of reward and recoil that got him away from spiting and excited to do work. Less

As a teacher in an urban setting, what discipline process do you utilize to manage your class so that you are able to educate all in your class?

2 Answers

The discipline process that I use to manage my class will be one that has built in positive behavior supports. Day 1 I will collaborate with my students to draft the class rules. This is important because I want the student to be able to not only read the rules but to know why these rules are important. Creating a classroom environment that is conducive to learning requires putting systems into place so that when students enter the class they know exactly what is expected of them. Having students be an intricate piece of the learning process and rewarding acceptable behavior is a part of how I as an educator will manage my classroom. Less

I will say that I use positive behavior management I believe that first and foremost you must go in and build a relationship with each and every child be open to understand each individual‘s unique abilities once you have that relationship they tend to respect you I believe in setting The tone of how the classroom is going to run from day one these kids need structure and consistency if they know from day one what your expectations are and you keep them true to hold in those expectations then nine out of 10 times you will have a successful classroom I also believe in keeping learning fun no one likes boring especially these kids they like hands-on activities a lot of community-based learning. Rewarding good behavior is something that a lot of people don’t like however in my teaching style unless the student has hurt another person or themselves as far as the parents are concerned they had a great day because it’s my job to run My classroom take care of the consequences there when it’s over it’s over we move on and it’s a new day always give them the opportunity to redeem themselves for small behavioral issues and don’t give attention to negative behaviors and I have seen that when you give attention to when they are doing good and ignore when they’re doing bad they tend to turn to good behaviors Less
