I have a student this year that I had the opportunity to spend 4 weeks with in July in summer school, so I already know her pretty well. She's an interesting/difficult student and I'm looking for some suggestions for how to handle her this year. She is constantly trying to get my attention. She's not the type of kid who wants the attention of the other students in the class, but she wants the attention and approval of her teachers at all times. I've been told that in the past she has pretended like she wasn't capable of completing her work so that she could get extra assistance (Title I support, etc) and I've seen bits and pieces of that from her. The biggest concern I have is that when she feels like she's not getting enough attention, she lashes out at other students to get the teacher's attention. I don't want to give her my constant attention (and can't!), but I want to avoid the inappropriate behaviors she exhibits to try to get my attention when she thinks I'm ignoring her. Any ideas for things that I can try with her?
