Distracting Student
I have a student in my internship who acts out when things don't go her way or when she doesn't receive praise for her good deeds. She will crawl on the floor, make disruptive noises, and refuse to comply with the teacher. What are some ways I can help this situation? My teacher has tried a lot of strategies.

A behavioral chart might work well with this student or some type of sticker system depending on her age. If she has a good week then she can be offered some kind of incentive such as extra technology time, lunch with the teacher, or maybe depending on your school she might be able to play a board game with someone of her choosing. Another idea might be to give her the choice to change the behavior as this might allow her to feel more in control.

A behavior chart might work wonders with this student. Throughout the day, keep track of the students willingness to comply and behave in the classroom. Have an incentive/reward for the student for going all week without breaking the classroom rules or being disobedient or disrespectful to the teacher. With students with this disposition, it can be quite difficult to narrow down what will work with them. If she is showing signs of a disability, I would recommend discussing with the teacher whether or not it is time to start collecting for this student and writing up paperwork for her.

There definitely needs to be some sort of way that this students behavior can be tracked and also in a way that the parents are able to see so that maybe at home they can step in and explain that these sort of reactions to not getting her way is not ok. Positive reinforcements can help of course, but the parents need to be involved and aware of what is going on.

Find a way to track students behavior. You can use this info to monitor students and let parents know about their students education.

I also agree that a behavioral chart or reward chart may be beneficial. Having a visual of her progress may give her the incentive to keep up the good behavior. If her misbehavior continues I would separate her from her peers or sit her closer to you or the teacher. If solutions still aren't successful, parent involvement may be necessary.
