This is one way to prevent students from escalating into misbehavior.
Often the reason that student behavior gets out of control is that they get anxious, or they are trying to get attention for another reason.
1. Make positive attention better teachers actively engage the most difficult student at the beginning of class saying something like, “I can’t wait to see what you think of this assignment.
2 Teach waiting now. Teach students to find ways to occupy themselves when they have nothing to do by instructing them to do something like doodling on the back of their notebook.
Making a sure a student is not anxious between transitions is an important aspect of de-escalation that keeps students from gravitating towards attention-seeking behavior.
1. Give the Student Space In order to avoidescalating with certain students, who for example might be humming loudly, itmay be better to leave a note and give the student space rather thanconfronting the student with eye contact and close proximity.
If the techniques are being used correctly then students prone to misbehaving should be calm, and their relationship with the teacher remains a positive one.
