Storyboard Text

  • Student Non-Compliance
  • Good Morning Class! Please take out your homework. 
  • Yo dude!   Did you watch Vampire Diaries last night?
  • Yeah!  It was so funny!  ha ha ha
  • Non-Compliance Continues
  • Seriously
  • Chris and Tom please stop talking and take out your homework. 
  • I don't have my homework, my dog ate it!  ha ha ha ha
  • OK-sorry.  Here is my homework.
  • Student Becomes Defiant
  • I am so sorry to hear that Chris, here is another copy for you to complete.
  • No way! I'm not doing the stupid homework again!
  • Chris, I want to talk to you about your homework situation, but first you need to calm down.  Take a few minutes to cool down and then come over to me so we can talk. 
  • The teacher asks all students to turn in their homework.  Chris is ignoring her and talking to Tom.  Tom is answering Chris and laughing.  Both boys are interrupting the class.   
  • "Cool Down" Break
  • Tom and Chris are asked to stop talking and to get their homework out.  Tom complies and apologizes.  Chris blurts out that his dog ate his homework and starts laughing out loud.  
  • Ask Open-Ended Questions
  • I just worked so hard on it and it took me a really long time.
  • OK,  Thank you.
  • The teacher tell Chris that she has another copy of the homework for him to complete.  Chris becomes very angry, he grabs the paper from the teacher and throws it to the ground and yells that he is not going to do the stupid homework again. 
  • Keep Responses Calm, Brief, and Businesslike
  • Chris, please pick up the paper and have a seat. 
  • Fine.
  • The teacher has a designated area in the room where students can go to "Cool Down".  Once the student has had a chance to calm down, the teacher can discuss what led to the outburst. 
  • Asking open-ended questions will help you fully understand the situation and help you come up with possible solutions.  
  •  How about I give you the new packet and you come in during my tutoring hour to complete it?  I will be there if you need any help. 
  •  What made you so angry about having to complete the new packet?
  • Short teacher responses give the defiant student less control over the interaction and can prevent the teacher from inadvertently 'rewarding' misbehaving students with lots of negative adult attention.
