Making jokes
In my internship, my CT allows call outs and sarcasm in the classroom. I am the most sarcastic person in the world, but sometimes I feel as though she can not get through a lesson because she is allowing these students to call out and make jokes every 5 seconds. How can I show her this is a distraction for most students? Also, how will I be able to stop this when I go to teach in her classroom?

When you go to teach in her classroom, I would establish a set of expectations with the students. Establish your own flow of how you want the school day to go. I understand that if there is already a routine in place, the students will be better off sticking to that routine. But implementing behavioral expectations is understandable since you are a different teacher. The changes don't need to be drastic, but they can alter the atmosphere of the room slightly. Such as, "If I am talking, you are silent." You won't be talking the entire day, and students will have plenty of time to speak with their peers. I am not sure of the rest of the conditions of your classroom, but this is how I would approach it if possible.

If I was in this situation I wouldn't agree with how my CT handles that situation but I would also feel it isn't my place to question his or hers classroom management. So my tip to you is to make notes of all the things you do and don't like as well as always make notes of what you could do and what you wouldn't do in your future classroom.
