Teaching Tip: Out-of-Control Student


At any time during the school day, it is possible that a student may become out of control and demonstrate irrational behavior. Such an occurrence represents a crisis which you cannot ignore. Your response to this crisis must be immediate. Here are some things you should do.
  • The student is certainly not calm, but you should be.
  • The student may be ranting and raving, but listen to what the student is trying to communicate.
  • The student is certainly not respectful, but you should be.
  • The student is probably speaking loudly or screaming, but you should use your normal tone of voice.
  • If possible, isolate the student from the rest of the class.
  • Get assistance from other teachers or administrators if you feel you cannot handle the crisis on your own.
