Storyboard Description

The student who finds waiting boring!

Storyboard Text

  • The case of a student who constantly disrupts class because waiting was boring. The boy though often did his work, but if he finished early or there was downtime in the class, he would start causing trouble.  - My technique would be to teach waiting  before the start of a specific activity.
  • Introduction
  • Before starting his new lesson, teacher decides to teach students about  "waiting" for 5 minutes.
  • Teacher  asks   students,  can anyone tell me what it means "To Wait?"
  • Students were defining "waiting" to teacher!
  • "To take turn, wait for your turn, let someone finish and then it’s your turn."
  • After listening to students, teacher defines "waiting" to students
  • “To wait,” means stay where one is or delay action until a particular time or event. Stand by, hold back, be patient, bide one’s time, kill time, waste time, cool one’s heels.
  • Teacher explains forward
  • When waiting in readiness for your teacher to guide you into what next you need to do, and you know many of your peers are not done yet, 
  • Teacher explains forward, and uses the opportunity to teach Michael about "waiting," and  gave him suggestions.
  • Michael, “What strategies do you think you could apply when you finish your work? When you finish your work, I will suggest you turn over the paper, and do some doodling appropriately on the back.  
  • control yourself by doing something that will not distract others. For example, Michael is always the first to finish his work.
  • After this small intervention the student’s behavior was so improved that his teacher thought he’d gone on medication.
