DON'T CALL OUT!
I am an intern. My CT is nice (with occasional mood swings), but she does not give me feedback and gets irritated when I ask for her suggestions.
I am having issues with students calling out. It is just two students. So far, I have talked to them but it did not work. I do not want to punish them because they mean well. They really need to stop calling out though. Does anyone have any suggestions?

I would focus on the students who are raising their hands and give those students positive praise. The students who call out should realize that they are not getting the attention they want because they are choosing to not raise their hands. I would tell the students who are following directions, "Thank you ___(student's name___ for following directions by raising your hand and waiting to be called on." If necessary, I would recommend reminding the students who call out to follow classroom rules and expectations. Perhaps even pointing out the rules on the chart in room. Students are looking for positive praise and consequences for their actions. I do not think it is necessary for the students to be punished and they should be reminded of what is expected. If the problem continues, I would recommend a warning for calling out and possibly having the student lose out on a reward that day whether it be a break or few minutes of recess, if applicable. Just a small thing for the student to realize it is better to follow the rules than to miss out on a few minutes of the fun.

I love this idea. Focusing on the students who are doing the right thing instead of the student misbehaving could be a nice change. It will make the other students want to do the right thing. This is what I would do if I were in this situation.

If you still do not want to punish them give them something to do instead off calling out the answers. They need something to so they aren't using their voice like write it down before answering or give silent signals to tell you that they have answer and want to give it. Something like raising a hand or even like saying the answer into their own hands may get them to be quieter or even stop.

While I agree with the post regarding positive reinforcement for those who ARE following the rules, perhaps in addition you can approach your CT with your issue, and how you plan to resolve it, and see how she reacts to that. Perhaps this teacher isn't necessarily irritated that you are asking her her assistance, but rather that you are asking her to solve an issue, and she wants you to work through it. Much like approaching a boss, presenting an issue and resolution is usually more well received than just presenting an issue.

Just an additional thought!

Use visual cues or extinction to ride the issue or set up a calling out cup. If anyone call's out, you add a marble to a jar or something like that. If the students have more the x amount of marbles, then take something away such as outside time or free time in the classroom.

Focus on students following procedure. If these students who are calling out do not get the attention they are looking for from calling out then they may start raising their hand and following the rules.

Their does not need to be a negative connotation with punishing them, however you might want to have something in place to keep them accountable. Letting them know that their are rules in place, such as raising their hand should be implemented.

I am also an issue and in one of my classes I have a similar problem. There are dominator with in large group who wish to answer every question the teacher asks. One way that I have begun to use is to specify the student I want to answer before I ask the question. For example Bob, can you tell us what the main idea of this story was? This way every student gets and opportunity to talk and the floor is never open to the whole class at once. This strategy is kind of working. I still have some issues with the student then speaking out to provide the other student with the answers but when I redirect them once they seem to work better.

Another way is to allow the student the opportunity to write their answers down on a white board or a index card laminated with a white-board marker that way they can show you they know the content with out calling out.

Although your CT may not be the easiest to talk to, try to talk to her about implementing a system to use or to try out. By asking her for her help or input, it may give you other ideas on how to fix this issue that is going on in the classroom.

Maybe just enforce the fact that they have to raise their hand and reward the ones that are raising their hands. Offer rewards like pencils or something to get the ball rolling... just an idea!

One thing I noticed works really well for students is to ignore the calling out and say "I like the way______ raises her hand before speaking." Or "I like the way ______ waits for me to finish my question before answering."

You should remind students daily that they need to raise their hands if they want to speak and give praise to those who do. For students who continue to call out I would reccomend moving their name on a behavior chart or giving them warnings that lead to a greater consequence.

push raising hands. Honestly you should find out what the two kids like. Give them that in exchange for raising hands.

A suggestion would be using positive rewards for when students raise their hands and do not call out. This will motivate the students to raise their hands instead of calling out along with there not being punishment.

I would implement a rule for all students so they know calling out is not tolerated. If a student does call out I would let them know I heard them but will not acknowledge what they said unless they want to follow the rules like every other student.

I would put every student's names on popsicle sticks and when you want group participation, they have to wait for their stick to be pulled. Or, you can implement a "talking stick" where only the person with the stick may talk. However, it is disappointing to hear that your CT is not helpful and I would have this addressed immediately.

if possible I would place negative actions on the students if they call off. If possible have the students bring responsible paper work to prove their absences are creditable.

You could give the students a small stick with five figures attached with Velcro to it. Each time the students call out during class, have them remove one. This might help by giving them a visual reminder of not calling out.
