Parents Have Tried Everything
There is a student who entered my school as a fourth grader this year. After a week of school, the teacher contacted the parents about the student's misbehavior. The parent notified the teacher that the student has a problem with authority. She stated that the student has always been this way and that nothing worked. His previous school tried everything, including suspension, and she cannot find a solution to help this student at home. The student is being monitored for Tier 2- behavior, but there is not enough data to move him to tier 3. Although the student is capable of producing quality work, the student's behavior has a negative effect on his grades. What can be done?

Without knowing everything you have tried to control the students misbehavior, I would make a few suggestions. If the student is capable of producing quality work, it may be that the student is not capable of sitting still in a desk for any length of time to produce quality work. Differentiation in assignments, of course, would be one option to try. I would try allowing the student to assist in duties around the classroom to keep him/her active but focused, not allowing time to misbehave.

I would question where the defiance is coming from. Has the student learned this behavior from his parents, friends, or other influences? At what point as this been considered acceptable?

I would model positive behavior with this student so that they understand how they should interact with adults. I would also give this student a lot of helper jobs as a positive reinforcement. However, if the student is disrespectful, their job is taken away until they exhibit positive behavior with adults and then they may earn the job back.

A solution would be to role play in scenarios that mirror the student's behavior. The student will be able to hear how his behavior makes others feel. Also, document everything regarding the student's poor behavior. Maybe you find a pattern of behavior.

Try to build a good relationship with the student so the student doesn't want to let you down. You could also try to see what the student is attempting to gain from misbehaving (probably attention) and try to provide the attention in other ways (have the student read aloud, for example).

Modeling appropriate classroom behavior is important as a teacher, no matter what. Getting to know the student and finding some positive rewards/incentives with a specialized behavior system might do him a lot of good. When finding these incentives, it's important to keep in my mind his interested. These rewards/incentives need to be appealing to him and otherwise not accessible.
