How Do You Respond To "Unpredictable" Student Behavior?
This week's question comes from Eric Skoog, who asks:
How can you minimize unpredictable behaviors that negatively affect your classroom?
I'm sure we all have experienced "unpredictable" (what a diplomatic way of phrasing it, Eric!) student behaviors in our classes. What strategies have you found helpful to the student exhibiting the behavior, to the rest of your students, and to your own sanity?
Anyone whose question is selected for this weekly column can choose one free book from a selection of twelve published by Eye On Education. Thanks, Eric!
You can send questions to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.When you send in your question, let me know if I can use your real name if it's selected or if you'd prefer remaining anonymous and have a pseudonym in mind.
I'm looking forward to learning from people's responses!
