Disrespectful Students
This week, my CT was out for a conference in Orlando. During this time, I took over with a substitute and a couple students were very disrespectful in my third period. They would completely ignore my comments, pull their phone out and rap profanities in the classroom. I tried everything to settle the situation(s). There aren't usually any issues when my CT is present, but I want students to understand that they must respect all teachers and adults. I ended up having one particular student sent to another class, and another sent to the office. What are some other ways that can help me manage student behavior when issues like this happen?

Stand. Your. Ground. If you make a threat for a consequence, follow through! I had to say make an example out of one student, but it would work. If the rest see you are serious about punishing their behavior they will start to shape up. Also, try bringing in a reward as well. Maybe a treat or a cool small item?

Offer consequences. For example, no recess time, changed seats, and calls home if a bad report is left from a substitute.

I would have a lesson for them and explain to them that Mrs. So and So will be grading the assignment. You don't have to make them understand that they need to respect teachers and all adults they should know this already. Your CT should had spoken to them prior to her convention and explain to them what would be expected from them and consequences if they didn't follow through. Seems like your CT didn't really plan her trip.

Students will always try to see how much they can get away with when their regular teacher is out of class. As a substitute I would tell you that sending students out is not a great solution but sometimes a necessary one. I try to give options to students such as you may do this or this and when you have been following my directions maybe you can have 5 minutes of free time. Also just accepting that sometimes you students can't handle change of having a new person in their classroom and nothing will help except for taking the time to build a relationship with the student.

This happened to me during my 6-12 internship. My CT let the students know that I am in charge now, and if they give me a hard time then their will be serious consequences. And that seemed to work.

It sounds like your students do not see you as a teacher currently. I recommend that you go into the classroom every day with the confidence that you in fact are a teacher and an adult that needs to be respected in that room. If the students do not see you as a confident adult that they need to respect, they wont.

Students who refuse to listen to you can get really difficult to deal with. I mostly face this issue with middle schoolers. I personally try and ask them if they are okay or if there is anything wrong. I do not do this in front of the class, I ask them privately. Usually they start working again. I feel like that is because I am not coming off as threatening to them. Which can also be a disadvantage. There are just some students who do not want to listen to authoritative figures. If that happens definitely try and get them out of the room if they continue disrupting class and be firm. Let students know what will happen if they break a rule and what the classroom rules are.

The students may not feel enthusiastic about your lessons. In terms of the cell phone utilization — if you can't beat them, join them. There are plenty of resources that students can use, such as Kahoot.
