I realize consistency is vital to an effective behavior management plan, but how do you decipher which "battles to pick." I understand disruptive behavior needs to be addressed, but if a student is ADHD, or needs to be redirected more than others, how do you remain consistent? Also, how do you address misbehavior without stopping the flow of the lesson? I use proximity, wait and stare before continuing, etc., but sometimes I'm blown away at the lack of respect. And it's "little" things, but big enough to really irritate me. I also would like advice on students being defiant (4th grade). For example, if I need a student to change seats because of excessive talking or whatever, they will argue with me or whine about it (4th grade). How do you handle this without getting into a power struggle? If a student starts to argue, how can you walk away from the situation without it looking like the student doesn't have to do what you ask of them? I also don't feel I need to explain myself to that student, especially if I'm trying to prevent further misbehavior, but if I do give a reason for my decision, they'll find a rebuttle or deny it. I hope this made sense. I appreciate any and all feedback. Thank you.
