Student physically acting out
I have a student who consistently acts out during class. He will get physical and pick up chairs and throw them across the room. Other students are in danger when this happens and every time we try to calm him down his behavior just worsens. We have tried to talk to parents and administration has been involved. What is the next step to get this under control?

A behavior management plan needs to be considered here. We are responsible for the safety of all students, so this behavior cannot be tolerated. Redirecting the behavior or catching it before the outburst starts is ideal, but immediate intervention to ensure safety for all is most important.

I agree having a behavioral plan for students who suffer from behavioral issues is a great idea.

First, I would get to the root of why he is acting up. Does he sleep enough at home, does he have the proper nutrients.. etc. Is he doing this to get attention? There are tons of reasons why he is acting this way. Secondly, I would have a one-to-one conversation with the student. Hear him out, be a listener. Be empathetic. There could be issues at home going on and he doesn't know how to express himself. Thirdly, I would try to make a plan with him. Have him let you know when he is feeling upset. Check in on him daily and reward for good behavior. Provide expectations and examples of good behavior vs. poor behavior. Creating boundaries and expectations along with structure is typically beneficial for troublemakers.

Being a teacher you must create behavioral plans for students with behavior issues. You must create these to make sure the student can learn and not constantly disrupting the class.

I would first inform the administration or guidance counselor at your school to see if they can do anything to help. I would also reach out to the parents of the child and explain to them what's been happening, a behavioral management plan may be needed

If i was a teacher I'll make the proper authorities aware of the situation but would take the matters into my own hands first.

This is a very dangerous situation. Try talking to the student when he is not being violent. Involve the parents as well and see if they have ways to deal with the situation. Include behavioral lessons in class and maybe positive reinforcements.
