1. Consistent inappropriate behavior
Amanda is constantly disrupting class. She talks loudly to others while you are teaching. She flirts with the boys who sit on either side of her, distracting them from their work. She passes notes and sighs and coughs loudly when you are giving instructions. You decide to use the five-step intervention process in this situation. Describe how you would use it and delineate its advantages and disadvantages.
You’ve been thinking about your procedures for managing student talk. You realize that your students aren’t following the expected procedure, which is to raise their hands and receive permission before speaking. You recognize the fact that the reason is probably from your own inconsistency. What might cause this type of inconsistency? What are your options for handling this situation?
