Sleeping Students

Found in: discipline

When you notice a student struggling to stay awake, try one of the following strategies. Direct a question to the student who is nodding off. Say her name first, hesitate a second, and then ask the question. Or casually walk over to the sleeper and touch him on the shoulder. Stand near the sleeper's desk while you continue the lesson. Don't criticize or discipline the student. A student's sleepiness may be caused by circumstances that are beyond his control such as a crisis at home. Embarrassing a student is never appropriate.
