So let me give you a transcript: Me: today we will BOB: murmer,talk,mumer ME: Bob? Bob: gets silent ME: ANYWAY, so we... BOB: talk, talk Me: Bob, do I need to move you(a bit annoyed tone)? BOB: No... ME: So... Bob: talk, talk ME: Bob, do you want to sit right here? ( point to chair next to me) Bob:No.( stops talking) I'm in my 6th week of student teaching and the first time this student Bob challenges me. I feel it makes class think I don't have control. I didn't yell, but I think you can tell I was annoyed. I talked to Bob personally and told him if he does it again, I will for sure move him, he then replied, well I'm absent tomorrow anyway...As you can see Bob is trying to challenge me now. I told him goodbye and look forward to see him work and to have a good day. I told him I really don't want him to fall behind. I told everyone great work and what not as they walked out but I still feel bad about what happened. Please any tips to make this better? What could I have done instead? I feel I did negative reinforcement caused him to be even more rebellious. Also he has an iep plan and no aid. High school students.
