Strategy 1: Behaviour Contract
Putting the disrespectful student on a behaviour contract will create an opportunity to highlight the behaviour you want to see in class and the behaviour that is prohibited in class.
Strategy 2: Problem Behaviour Survey
For the student to take to become aware of the behaviour that is being disruptive and disrespectful. This survey can also help the student to take ownership for their actions and give the student a different perspective.
Strategy 3: Teach Coping Skills
This student may not know many coping skills to a variety of situations and therefor is becoming disrespectful out of lack of knowing coping skills. Being able to sit down and teach this student specific coping skills when feeling overwhelmed or upset will assist with improving their behaviour.
Strategy 1: Mentoring
In conjunction with the other strategies to mentor the student that is being disrespectful in class would be a one on one approach to seeing through the other strategies
Strategy 2: Non-verbal Cues and Signals
This is a great way to check in with the student if there are some things that have become a pattern and will give the student a chance to make a good decision
Strategy 3: Alternatives to Suspension
Giving the student something to work towards to avoid being suspended for their behaviour
Strategy 1: Clear, Consistent, and Predictable Consequences
It is the cornerstone to all consequence systems. Students need firm boundaries to be held to them if they act out. It reduces excuses for the student when they know the consequence and behaviour that results in it. It provides structure and students that are disrespectful will often require this to increase their behaviour.
Strategy 2: Positive Praise
Providing encouragement for the behaviour you want to see and making the effort to point it out when it does occur can be very powerful. To ensure the student with the disrespectful behaviour can understand that they will also get positive praise when behaving in a positive way.
Strategy 3: Talk to Parent
Keeping the parent informed about the students behaviour in class can create accountability at home as well. If the parent is on board with discussing why the student is being disrespectful in class it can get to the route of the cause and also provide some solutions to ways to engage the student and curb the disrespectful behaviour.
