I'm reading parts of Tools for Teaching and it has prompted a question which I think some of you may be able to help me with: How do you respond to HS students who try to get your attention repeatedly, no matter what you are doing? It goes something like this -- I am talking to one student and a second student, either across the room or right next to me, starts in with, "Ms. Myri....Ms. Myri...MS. MYRI." Sometimes s/he will launch into the question without even waiting for my acknowledgement. My default response has been to ignore the interrupting student until I am 100% done with whoever I am currently speaking with. The interrupting student, more often than not, doesn't seem to care that s/he is being ignored and doesn't pick up on the fact that s/he is being rude. Hence, it happens again and again. How do you deal with this in your classroom?
