Student Makes a Scene Anytime He is Asked to do Work or Fix Behavior
I have a student in my internship who I never quite know how to handle. He is a very active student, and is always talking or moving about the room. When he is blatantly being disrespectful (i.e. purposefully bothering another student who is asking him to stop) and me or the teacher asks him to return to his desk or leave the student alone, he will scream out about how he "wasn't even doing anything" or just make loud, upset noises and then make a scene. If he is off task and I or the teacher asks him to get back on task, he will shut down, make a comment, or walk out of the room. The words we are using are soft, and never accusatory. How should I get this kid back on task without him shutting down or making a scene??

This seems like a student who does not want to just stop doing what he is doing and move in. I think this is a great opportunity to use restorative practices. Pulling him aside, especially since you are a second body in the room, and taking the time to explore his feelings. This will give you some insight to why he is doing what he is doing. Also, reminding him what the expectations in the classroom are. It is important to be specific what the expectations are because they truly might not know what it is to be respectful, as an example. If this were the case, I would go on explaining that respecting your peers means, not invading their personal space, not teasing or causing them to become upset and allowing them to focus and learn so that they can succeed. These are examples I would suggest.

When he has one of these outbursts, try and sit with him in the hallway. Somewhere one-on-one and try to see what is really bothering him. Once you listen to him for awhile, suggest taking deep breathes when he starts feeling angry.

I would talk to him one on one, create a management plan, and try to understand the child.

One on one conversation with this student, not only at the time that he is getting in trouble but other times too. Praise him when he is having good behavior as well.

This, of course, happens way too much. I think that this needs to be discussed as a whole with the parents.
