Calling Out
In my 9-12 ESE class, I have one student that calls out the answer even before I am done asking a question. How do I address this?

I would remind the student about the classroom rule of no calling out and the classroom procedure of how students should ask questions. If the student keeps calling out, you have to give them a warning. Multiple warnings results in sitting away from the class because they're now disruptive.

Before I ask questions in these types of settings, I let the students know the type of responses I am looking for. If I would like students to raise their hands in order to answer, I tell them and then ask the question. If I would like students to all answer out loud together, I tell them and then ask the question. This lets students know what is expected of them and prompts them to do what is asked right before it even happens.

Providing the format for the answer is a good idea, as it should help to keep the student focused on the immediate action that you want to see performed. It also provides you with the ability to talk with them if the behavior continues and make sure they understand what you are asking of them.

I would explain to the student, this is a class effort and that he should call out the answer. The student needs to raise his hand.

I would explain to the student one-on-one and explain that everyone should try to get a turn to answer. But I would also make sure to acknowledge that they are participating in class.

I would go over classroom rules every morning for a reminder that we do not call out in class. I would then personally remind the student that we need to take turns answering questions in class. If the student continues to call out I would tell them that they are going to have to do their assignment one on one with an aid because their classmates are not getting turns to answer questions.

I would remind the students before you start the lesson of proper response behavior and that you want to make sure everyone can get a chance to participate. You could also use a stick with names or numbers and select responses that way to eliminate calling out. You can use an incentive program that allows the students to earn points for the day or week that earns them special privileges like extra computer time. If a student breaks a rule they should be given a warning and if behavior continues than they will need to give you one of their points.

I would review the class rules "raising your hand for permission to speak" at the beginning of class. The student that is calling out needs a continual reminder to raise their hand. Having an "answer" sign, they raise when they know the answer would require them to do something physical before calling out. The sign can be a simple hexagon shape poster board glued to a popsicle stick. The sign will be on the desk in front of them to serve as a reminder as well as a physical action before bursting out in class. If your concern that the sign singles out the individual student, then provide a sign to all students or something else. Whatever you decide to use, the goal is to provide the student a fun step, "holding a sign in the air" and providing him with a visual reminder before he is tempted to talk out.

I volunteer in a second grade classroom that also has one student that calls out answers. My teacher addresses it by sending them away from the class, whether it be their desk or to do silent reading. At least by sending them away from the class, they know that calling out isn't acceptable.

I would sit down with them after class and discuss with them the issue. I would let them know that while you are very happy that they're so eager to answer questions and participate in class, that it is also disrespectful to call out and interrupt others, especially a teacher. Tell them they need to wait till you are finished speaking and then raise their hands quietly and then wait to be called on before shouting out an answer.

If you have previously implemented a strategy to answer questions such as: raising your hand, thumbs up, etc. remind student on how you answer questions. If you have not implemented a strategy, I would ask the student to not call out and allow for others to answer. At the end of the school day call the student over for a one on one and talk to them about why calling out is not okay in the classroom.

A possible solution could be giving the student a colored piece of paper or something that they could raise in their hand in the air when they would like to answer a question. This would be a little thing that I think would remind them to raise their hand to answer a question, along with an engaging thing for them to do.

Yes! Going over the rules should help by keeping them in the students head.

I would single the student out and go over the rules. If the misbehavior keeps occurring I would discipline the student
