Effects of the Condition on School and Home Behavior

The way that a teacher can engage these types of students is by sitting down with them one to one and asking the student what is really going on. You as a teacher need to build trust amongst your students, so that they can confide in you why they are acting out. 

 

According to Lehman, "Parents and teachers should be on the same team, but sadly, often they’re not." (Lehman, 2017, para. 17). Although, teachers see this type of activity, too often, parents don't. Parents are not around to see how the students act when they are in the classroom and therefore have to take either your or their child's word for what is going on. Lehman recommends that the parents and teachers get together and discuss the behavior and strategies that can be done both in the class and at home that can be effective. 

  What will you do in your classroom to support this learning? 

I personally, will get together with my students as well as reach out to their parent/guardian to see how the students are acting at home. I want to be able to solve the issues as fast as possible so that the students are learning what needs to be learned. I will provide skills lessons before an activity to ensure that each student is aware of how to perform the activity correctly. I will also make sure that there are no students criticizing others. Part of my classroom rules is that students are to give positive reinforcement to others. 

What experiences, activities, lessons, techniques, interactions or resources could parents use at home? 

Parents can talk with their children and find out what is going on. The parents can then let the teacher know the root cause of this behavior and therefore, the problem can then be worked on.
