Problem Child
In my class there is a student that does not take correction well at all. He walks out of the class almost every day and is always disrupting the classroom. The CT doesn't know how to get him to stop walking out of the classroom. They have had parent teacher conferences and talked with the principal. Nothing seems to work with this student.

I have a student like this in my classroom as well. There have been numerous attempts to correct or lessen the behavior. Some things work and some don't. The key is to be consistent and never give up on the student. Some strategies that have worked well for her are; behavior point sheets, break passes after 30 minutes of work, and sticker incentives. I suggest finding something that motivates the student and working from there.

I agree, don't give up on the student. Find something that helps motivate them.

Try talking to the student privately and figuring out the core reason of the students defiance, I think this may help gain respect in the relationship and the student may open up which could help you figure out why they are acting the way they are

I think you should try and talk with student privately ask him if there is something going on at home or how you can help him stay concentrated in class.

Talking with student could really help. Sometimes students need some one-on-one time.

I think that if literally nothing is working, including getting the principal involved, maybe try empathizing with the student. Try connecting with them on some level and maybe that could change their behavior.

Students need to know that their teachers care, so connecting with this one on some level is great idea.

Walking out of the classroom is not acceptable. There needs to be some sort of consequence for this action. It may be something like he has a set amount of points for the week but if he walks out he looses points. If he loses points he loses a privileged and he maintains points he receives some sort of incentive.

Instead of trying to correct the student for say. I would try to encourage the student and help the student correct themselves. Since you had contacted the parents and principal, and it did not work. I feel if you help the student correct themselves would be the best way to avoid the student from walking out of the classroom.

Provide preferential seating where they are away from the front entrance and somewhere the teacher can easily monitor the student. Try finding out the main root of why the student continues to walk out of the classroom.

Does the classroom door lock? If so, I would lock the door to avoid him from walking out. If he has this behavior documented there should be a counselor in the school that should be called when he walks out and let them handle it. You cant chase him down the hallway and your focus needs to also be on your other students. If he continues, maybe see about placing him in a more restrictive environment with less students.

My CT had a situation likes this also. They had to call the behavior specialist almost every day to remove the student from the classroom. The administration, his parents and all of his teachers had a meeting and agreed that he needed to be moved an EBD unit at another school. Maybe this is something the students' parents and teachers should consider.

This child probably needs to be in another classroom that will work one on one with him to help him get through the day. He might have anger issues or a disability that no one knows about so I think the parents should get him tested.
