Behavior Management
Miss K teachers two art classes a day. During 5th grade art the students will not listen and have their own agenda. They will argue across the classroom, be disrespectful to the teacher and others, and will not do as asked.This behavior is seen throughout the day with the general education teachers as well. The 5th grade class been given writing assignments and privileges have been taken away. A reward system has also been in place. Nothing has seemed to help. What can Miss K do to get the students to behave during art time?

Miss K could use their arguments as a debate for a topic in class. If the students like this type of thing and it keeps them engaged, use it to your advantage. Also, did the students choose what their rewards would be? Sometimes we think we have a good reward system in place, but the students are not interested in the rewards. Letting the students choose their reward will give them more motivation to do right.

Your solution regarding the type of reward is true. If the students are not interested in receiving the reward, then they will not try to earn it. You make a good point about asking the students about what type of reward they want, this involves them and makes them feel included in the reward system.

I always tell my students, "I can show you better than I can tell you!" You have to remove the students causing the issues. For the others, art should be an easy subject to incorporate some of their hobbies and interests in. Use their interests to create your art activities. By making sure students interests are incorporated into your lesson, they may actually start to enjoy art which will allow them to be more engaged and focused on the tasks rather than misbehaving.

Miss K needs to evaluate the students and determine the ringleader of the misbehavior. She should start with the ringleader of the misbehavior and ask him or her to stop the negative behavior and remind him or her of the classroom rules. If the student does not stop then tell him or her that you will call his or her parents. Make sure not to respond to the student if the say, "Why are you picking on me." or the other students, "You are mean." Once the students see that Miss K is serious about her classroom management by starting with the one person at the time, the ringleader, then the followers will stop.

If things have been taken away and a reward system has been established but still is not working then the teachers need to start getting in contact with parents so that they are aware of what is going on with the students. Also discuss with the parents the best course of action for their child, because as teachers we may think we know our students but no one knows them like their parents.

One solution is to have a higher authority come in and observe the 5th graders during art time. Try and be discreet with the person being in their so they can have a true sense of what is happening. Then after class the two of you can go over what they saw and try and fix it. A second solution is to start from the basics and work your way up. We must be more strict with the upper level grades.

Once thing I have learned about motivation is that students like choice. Like there is a reward system in place, what are the rewards? Something the students will like and that will motivate them to behave? If not, ask the students. By giving students the choice to decide what they'll work for, that will motivate them.
