Classroom management

Postby teens on Thu Nov 22, 2012 1:17 am

Hello

I hope I have the right forum.

I’m a trainee teacher teaching language. I had an incident recently with a defiant adult student. I politely asked her and her fellow student to move to the front to join two other students and fill in the empty chairs. She defiantly said NO! and would not move. I asked her again in a strict tone to move over which she reluctantly did. Unfortunately I asked her what the problem was in front of the class, then she was silent. This student is a passenger and will not participate or work with others but wants to sit in the same seat with the same person. On one or two occasions I have spoken to her after the class in private and asked her if she understands the lessons (trying to find out the barriers) no response. I gave up eventually incase she thought I was picking on her.

I teach voluntary and the students know that some the teachers are trainees and volunteers.

I would appreciate your advice on a remedy for this situation.

Thank you
teens
