Calling Out
Our class rules state that students must raise their hands before answering or speaking in class. I have an ESE student that is very intelligent and likes to answer all of the questions, but is constantly calling out before other students have a chance to raise their hands. I have tried reminding him of the classroom expectations, but the issue still remains. What should I do?

Perhaps it would be more effective to practice a reward system when he follows the rules and allows his peers to answer questions also. Each time he raises his hand instead of calling out, he could earn a point which can lead to a special prize or activity at the end of the week. Or, you could talk with him and let him know that you will not accept shouted answers, they will be ignored and someone who raises their hand will be called on. Then just push through that scenario a few times until he can see that he is not getting attention when he chooses to not follow the rules.

Even though the class rules are clear, it might be helpful to remind the entire group before teaching the lesson. So lay down the ground rules that there will be no talking without raising hands. If he still does then remind him again about the rules that were laid down. If it starts to seem he is doing it on purpose now I would consider speaking with him after class as to not completely embarrass him in front of the entire group. Let him know that if this behavior continues he will have to give away perk he enjoys, or get extra work, etc.

I am working on a behavior management plan for a student with a similar habit. For him, I created a behavior contract so he know what is expected of him. He has specific goals, consequences, and rewards. It is easy to implement alongside a current classroom management plan. What is a positive incentive you could use as a reward for good behavior? What does your student like? My student likes video games so he is working toward free time to play on the PlayStation 2. His goal for this week is three or less call-outs for the day. I am working to increase the expectations and decrease his call-outs for each goal. You can use a tally/sticker chart to track the number of call-outs and the number of days with goals met.

You could have the student right down the answers on a piece of paper and come by and check his answer while letting another student answer verbally. You can tell the ESE student that you know he knows the answers but other kids in the class need a chance to answer too.

I would create a system where you write the students name on Popsicle sticks and when you are doing a lesson where students need to answer questions you can pull a name randomly out of the jar of Popsicle sticks that way everyone gets a chance to answer and it is random so they will need to be paying attention because they will not know when they will be called on and then if the person you pulled doesn't know the answer i would call on your ESE student who always wants to answer. I would explain this system to him and think of a reward that you are able to give him each time he waits for his turn to answer. I feel like a tangible reward would work best because it reinforces the behavior immediately. With consistency and positive affirmation i feel he will be able to follow the class rules. Sometimes we have to adjust our rules and methods when working with our ESE students when they are having trouble understanding them the original way.

A possible solution could be giving the ESE 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. I think this could also serve as a sensory item for the ESE student.

Providing additional stimulation is not a bad idea, particularly since it would allow the student to have something to do to show they know the answer. It is also not disruptive to other students, and should allow the student to understand that calling out is not an acceptable behavior.

Children love rewards. I think if you demonstrate that other students get rewards for raising their hands, he will begin to raise his hand. After he begins that give him a reward. I hope it gets situated

I would provide a jar with names on popsicle sticks and give the job of choosing a stick and announcing the person to this student. This will give this student a job that allows them to speak but makes them give others a chance to answer the questions.

I would have a one-on-one with the student and have them write a statement explaining what they think of their behavior, why they are behaving this way, and how they would feel if others treated them that way. Having the student participate in a self-awareness activity might help them to see how their behavior is impacting the rest of the class.

Create a reward incentive for students to follow your class rules and answer questions correctly. By doing this, they now have a reason to follow the rules in the class.

I would use the Popsicle stick activity. Each student has their name or roster number on a Popsicle stick, and they are all placed in a cup. Each time someone is going to be asked to answer, the teacher draws a stick. After being called on, their stick is placed to the side until all of the sticks have been chosen. Address the students at the beginning that they will have their names drawn by the sticks. This will give everyone a chance to answer and the student will understand they are not being overlooked. They will know that they have just as much a chance to be chosen to answer as the other students. This also makes the student a part of the class, and the class will not think they are receiving any "special treatment."

One could have a class meeting and discuss the importance of raising your hand in class. You could also reward students for raising their hand with something simple like an animal cracker and reinforce it with "thank you for raising your hand".

Seeing that telling the student to raise their hand and is not following the direction maybe try implementing a reward system for the student. This way the other students will have a chance to answer questions as well.

I would try a reward system/incentive. If you do not call out, you get a sticker kind of thing! Maybe even have a weekly challenge. You could also try to using writing boards more, so that none of the students call out and get more in the habit of holding up their board.

I would bring the student outside and explain in detail why it is important to raise his hand and give the other students a chance to feel accomplished and smart themselves. I would made a deal with him if he could remember to raise his hand that he would get a small treat or prize of some sort.

Maybe pull him aside and remind him that he is not helping his peers out by calling out the answers. They need more time to think about question and come up with an answer. Or twist the scenario, that another student is calling out before he has a chance to think and see if he feels differently about his behavior.

If you have reminded students of the classroom expectations multiple times, then it is time for you to start using the consequences you have in place. I would start by talking to the student privately about the issue and if the behavior continues then I would start to take things away like recess time, fun Friday, or send notes home to parents.
