Redirecting Students’ Negative Behavior


Found in: handling disruptions

What I would do is maneuver negative behavior into a positive direction. For example, for a student who refuses to stop talking, give him/her a role that will allow them to talk a lot. For the student who refuses to be still, give him/her a role where he/she is frequently having to move around and about in the room. For the student who likes attention, give him/her a role that will allow them to receive attention a couple of times throughout the day.

It's very important that other students are also given roles, big or small, so that the misbehaving student will not feel like he/she is receiving special attention, despite their "bad" behavior. This is an indirect approach.
