Student does not do any work and disrupts class.
In my internship theirs a student that doesn't do any work and disrupts the classroom by shouting out things like "this is stupid"," boring" or mimics the teacher. CT is going nuts trying to control this student. She has called admin and they take him to the office and is given an I pad for him to play on for the rest of the day. What are good ways to calm this students down.

Taking him out of class is exactly what he wants, I would use postive behavior support and use a reward driven behavior management system. Also keeping an open line of sommunication with the parents would be helpful too.

I would stand closer to the student so they would be aware of my presence and then rethink their actions.

I agree. Taking the student out of class is what they want. This is the best solution and I would do exactly this.

Reinforce positive behavior in the classroom, if a student is quietly engaged in the lesson reward them. The student may see this behavior being rewarded and stop interrupting and doing their work to be rewarded.

He is essentially being rewarded for his poor behavior. I would not have him taken out of the class and I would certainly not suggest giving him an iPad for the remainder of the day. This student continues to act out because he knows that behavior will grant him what he desires. Depending on the age of the student, I would take recess time away (if in Elementary school), would assign the student to be a teacher's helper for the afternoon, etcetera. Something that would give the student attention but keep him in the classroom.

I completely agree that the student is being rewarded for his bad behavior. He is being rewarded because he doesn't have to complete the task that he finds "stupid" and "boring" since he leaves the classroom and then he gets to play on an ipad. I liked your idea of giving the student the role of teacher's helper to give him the attention he wants in another way.

Have you or your CT tried doing an incentive system? Rewards and punishment? Also maybe try rearranging the desks in a way that is less distracting to himself and other.

Often time students that don't do work or cause disruptions often times aren't understanding the material. I would try to provide incentives to get the student to do the work after determining that the student is comprehending the material.

Sending the student out of the class is exactly what he wants. Some sort of management plan needs to be implemented to give the student incentives to do the right thing and stay on task. How this plan is developed and what it entails, depends on the needs of the student. I would need more information to offer suggestions for that.

I would rearrange the student’s seating. Perhaps this would remedy the student’s behavioral problems.

This student may need more challenging work. If he is not engaged, this disruption will only increase. Additionally, this student knows that every time he acts out he gets sent to the office to play on the iPad. Therefore, he will only do it more. I would give him work that is challenging and that pushes him to think more. Then he will be more focused on the assignment. Maybe you could even give him an individual project to work on. He could research a specific topic and give a presentation to the class about it. He could pick the form of presentation, whether it be writing a song, building a diorama, or painting a picture. He could work on this in class after he finishes his other work and at home.

You can utilize positive behavior reinforcement. Also, if you have established a rapport with the student, you may benefit from having a discussion with the student. The student may be acting out due to issues at home.

I would allow him to go to a walk and come back when he has calmed down. Getting admin involved shows you cant handle the situation and they will continue to over step the teacher.
