Disruptive Students

Found in: building trust & community; discipline

In my experience, the only thing that has had any impact on chronically disruptive students is to make some kind of personal connection with them. I'll sometimes sit next to them during time when other students are working and answer some of the student's questions about me/my life. It is, admittedly, a balancing act to let the students learn a little about my personal life, but sometimes, just learning that I have a son their age is enough for them to see me as someone they can relate to instead of some authority figure to defy.
