DT & Engineering Blog: Behaviour Management – Managing student comments



Strategies in managing student comments:

  • revisit the class contract
  • be assertive when challenging the comments being made
  • remind students of what behaviours sabotage their chance of being a successful class
  • use ‘I’ statements, eg, “I need you to stop saying things like that, as I expect everyone to treat each other with respect in this class”
  • have a quiet word with the individuals involved
  • follow the school procedures for more overtly hostile, bullying or abusive comments.
