Effective Ways to Address Misbehavior - Inservice

When a student does something inappropriate in class, he is usually expecting the teacher to react in a certain way.  He knows he has an audience (his classmates), and he is often putting on a performance.  Many teachers make the mistake of dealing with this type of student in front of his audience, and the behavior rarely improves.  In fact, a bad situation usually worsens.  Great teachers, of course, have effective ways of dealing with this type of student.  They talk one-on-one, in private, defusing any hope of a power struggle or an Oscar-winning performance on the part of the student.


After greeting your teachers as they enter the in-service or meeting and using your procedure for getting their attention, say:

Do you still have a few students who occasionally do not follow all of your procedures?  Do you have students who are chronic talkers and are failing to raise their hands and ask for permission to speak?


By the way, even your best teachers occasionally experience such situations.  So you will have the rapt attention of all your teachers.  Tell them that today you will be sharing an effective technique for dealing with a student who is behaving inappropriately or is regularly ignoring one of your procedures.  (note that we are not talking about a student who fails to follow a procedure once or twice.)



When a student is chronically talking out of turn, meet with the student privately and say, in a tone of concern and not frustration, "I've noticed that you're having trouble remembering our procedure for raising your hand before speaking.  Don't be too hard on yourself for forgetting.  I'm an adult, and I often forget things.  But I know how embarrassing it can be to forget so often in front of your friends.  So here's what I'm willing to do for you.  I will give you my recess today and practice with you so that you will become really good at following that procedure and be less likely to forget.  I'm happy to do that for you.  See you at recess."  That's it.  In essence, you are pretending that you think that the student is just forgetting to raise his hand.  Surely he would not be purposely ignoring the procedure!  The key is that you are not at all sarcastic and that you tell the student you are willing to give of your own time to help him.  Do you see what you just did?  You did not take his recess from him, but rather you gave him yours!


So the student comes in at recess, and you say, "Thanks for coming in.  Okay, now pretend that we are in class and you have something you want to say.  Show me what you'll do."  The student slowly raises his hand and you say, "Great! I can give you fifteen more minutes of practice.  Do you think you need more practice, or do you feel you have it now?"  The student always says, " I have it."  Then say, "Great.  See you tomorrow.  Oh, if you forget again tomorrow, that's my fault.  That simply means I didn't give you enough practice.  I'll even stay after school for you if you need.  Just let me know.


Please not that this technique takes less than a minute, so the good news is that you do not lose your own recess after all.  And if you teach in a school where there is no recess,  you can use this technique between classes, during your planning period, during class while the other students are working independently, during lunch, and so on.


One final note:  some teachers may ask, "well, what if the student does not show up at recess?"  The answer is simple:  Go and find him and say, "oh you must have forgotten that you and I have a practice session.  Let's go."  And you do this with a smile on your face.


Implementation - It would be good for teachers to practice this technique at least once with a student.  If they implement if appropriately, they'll be using it from here on out. 

You could end your session/meeting by saying,  The private practice session strategy is a simple one that produces amazing results.  Anyone who tells you that private practice sessions with students don't work has obviously never tried them or is not using them appropriately.  Practice makes perfect, doesn't it?  So practice your private practice sessions and you'll soon see few behavior indiscretions.

The Role of the Site Administrator

Research studies demonstrate that Site Administrators have a huge impact on the success of Credential Candidates.  The EBIC program helps inform Site Administrators on the importance of their role in supporting the success of the Credential Candidate.   Induction program standards - Standards of Quality and Effectiveness for Professional Teacher Induction Programs require that Site Administrators:

  • Receive Roles & Responsibilities of K-12 School Organizations information
  • Conduct site orientations
  • Introduce new teachers to staff
  • Allow for new teachers to spend time with their Support Providers.
  • Respect confidentiality between the Support Provider and new teacher
  • Establish a school culture that supports new teacher success
  • Establish a school culture based on standards and success for all students
