Yelling out
If you are in front of the entire class trying to correct a pretest so that everyone knows what to do for the test, what do you do if you have one student who is just yelling out all of the answers, sometimes before you even ask the question and the rest of the class is sitting there bored out of their minds. You don't want to ask the student not to answer because he is the type of student who if you did that he would probably find some other way to be disruptive and then he wouldn't be paying attention at all. Plus, chances are that if he were not yelling out the answers, no one else would have.

I would suggest for you to remind the students of the rituals and routines of the class. I would tell them to raise their hand and wait until you are acknowledged to answer. I find it that most times when I have a student that blurts out, before I want them to answer, I would remind them not to blurt out the answer. This is a redirection for that student. If the student continues, the I will follow an assertive discipline plan for that student such as call a parent, or after school detention.

I would review the class rules and how we act in a classroom setting with our peers, and teachers. You can never review the class rules enough.

It does not hurt to always reference the rules.

The first thing I would do would be to ask him, what do we do if we want to answer a question. The second time it happens I would simply raise my hand and say the students name. If it happen again, I would give he or she a mark in their planner.

I would say to the student I like the way your are answering the questions, but I would like to hear form the other students as well. I would use a tatic such as, when I call your name answer the question. I have also seen reminder signs (for younger students) called "Blurt Alerts" when a student calls out the sign is held up as a reminder to raise a hand or wait for a turn. This was used for a younger class and the reminder worked as a visual for the student to follow. A smaller "Blurt Alert card can be made to give to the student as a visual reminder to wait his/her turn. Another object can also be used a"turn taking" stick or small ball. This may be also helpful for students that need visual reminders.

Good idea, I would maybe also add a way to determine who is next. Go through in order of where they are sitting or by their name and have each individual one answer. So that there is no confusion on who is next.

I would try something different and set up students into groups. I would make the activity like a game by giving students buzzers. I would ask students questions and the first student who has it would push their buzzer (rather than yelling out). I would emphasize to students to first discuss with their group before pushing the buzzer.

I would never have students raise their hands because I would have their names written on popsicle sticks. I would randomly draw a student's name so the students will never know who will be called on next. To make sure that each student gets a fair chance to be called on I will remove a students stick if I had called their name twice during the same activity.

I believe holding a conference with the student would be a good idea. Class rules and procedures would be reviewed and clarified. I would also thank the student for their eagerness and participation but it just needs to be shown in an orderly manner.

Waiting for all of the students to think of an answer is very important. If this students continues to yell out the answers than it is doing a disservice to the other students in the room. The other students are only bored because this student is the only one being permitted to participate. Perhaps, you could make this student in charge of pulling sticks out with each student's name on them and then calling on them. This way he would be participating, engaged, and the other students would be able to participate.
