Aggressive Behavior
In a class I was an intern for, a student would get random bursts of anger in which he would flip his desk, storm out of the room, or throw books. This behavior was posing a threat to other students, so the teacher isolated the student's desk permanently and sent the student to the counselor. Time and time again, the behavior persisted. Personally, I think the child has some sort of anger management issues, but there is nothing the educator can do solely. What would be the next appropriate action?

I believe that these kinds of issues might be out of a teachers hands. This student might have some underlying issues that need to be addressed by parents and a therapist. The next I believe that needs to be taken is a parent conference and with an administrator. The last thing anyone wants to do is endanger the other students with his outbursts.

I would talk to the teacher that usually teaches that class to see if she notices it too. I would then maybe do the research to see if you can see what that student has. He or she might have a type of disability and need extra attention that they are not getting in that class.

Sometimes this is a indicator of some kind of Learning Disability. I have a first grader like this who will have fits of anger when he does not get to make the decisions while we are doing work. I am an aide and the first thing I asked for was if he did or did not have an IEP. IEPs are programs written for children with learning disabilities that explains what is going on and how to handle the situation! Anyone working with the child has a right to access the IEP and is in fact encouraged to do so. Also do not underestimate the power of positive reinforcement. A lot of the times this disruptive and aggressive behavior is a cry for attention. Simply do your best to ignore the negative behavior and reward as often and excessively as you can when he does something he is asked to do. Even if it is something as simple as sitting in his seat, praise him and let him know he is doing well! This will encourage the student to want to participate and do what he is asked to do. If the problem persists, perhaps a parent teacher conference will help. After all, no one knows the child better than their parent(s)!

I think as the intern you can't take many actions. I would suggest talking to the teacher about placing that student in an EBD classroom. They might get a better education in an environment that they can stay calm in.
