Racism
I have a student in class who calls the teachers racist whenever he gets in trouble for anything. How can I go about having him understand that is not the case, but his behavior.

I would ask for an observer to come and monitor how the class is run. There may be a trigger that may be coming from the teacher that sparks the student or the student may feel as he/she is a target every time he/she gets in trouble and they feel the color of their skin is the reason. Also explain to the student for the reason why they have got in trouble for a better reasoning rather allowing the student to feel because of his/her skin color is the reason.

As a teacher I would have a one on one conversation with the student. I would ask the student to present a project about racism in class. This could give the student the opportunity to research the real meaning of the word. After giving the presentation, I would have a one on one conversation with the student and ask if I am being racist or if his behavior needs to be improved?

It does not feel good to be called racist but students of color have dealt with racism their entire life. Letting them know that they upset you will only be the cause for more in their mind. Relax your mind and do not let it bother you. I would say if the situation continues to happen you could try to see if it is the way you are saying something or mannerisms. Once all these are ruled out you could try to have a restorative circle.

Let the class know that any action that is taken place in the classroom has absolutely nothing to do with race. Everyone should be treated equally. The student's parents should be told of their actions.

I would do a whole lesson on racism. He is probably exposed to behavior like this at home and needs some sort of guidance. Instead of calling him out, do a lesson on it that involves the history and true definition of racism.

A solution would be to pull the student aside from fellow students and inform that what he is suggesting is extremely rude,not the case at all and he will be written up. Remind him of the rules of the classroom and inform him that a conference with his parents will be set up and he will be invited to join to discuss his present behavior and the creation of a behavior plan. I would also give an age appropriate lesson on what true racism is and how if effects all people.
