      I am not sure what you mean by "cope up" but the best way to deal with problems is prevent them from happening in the first place. Do not only talk about behavior when something comes up' it should be continuous, and expectations go along with it. Give students autonomy and responsibility in the classroom and have honest and frank discussions regularly and they will feel that they can be honest and open with you about any issues they have.

        Also use your resources! Administration, other teachers, parents, counselors, etc. An outside observer or a someone not directly involved with the conflict can be a very useful tool. Plus they may be able to offer insight about the student(s) or advice from their own experiences dealing with behavior issues.

          Sumbul -

          What behaviors specifically are embedding your teaching progress? I could probably be more helpful if I know the age of your students and the specific behaviors. Also, what have you tried already to minimize the behaviors?

            I am dealing with grade 8 and most of the pupils are boys. I used to have a friendly relationship with my students bu when we are n task they all are required to focus on their work. We have a very comfortable system of education for the students as well as for the teachers. But at times children start showing negligence towards their responsibilities. discussion and differentiation strategies helps but I need some useful one for all grades.

              Hello Sumbul,
              I am posting a link that I think will help you in coping with the behavior problems you may experience in the middle school setting.
              http://www.glencoe.com/sec/teachingtoday/subject/strategies.phtml
              excerpt: Middle School students experience developmental changes unparalleled by any other age group. Puberty marks a time when students' lives are filled with emotional, physical, and cognitive growth. Yet, individual students progress through this transition period at varying times and paces. A "one size fits all" formula for middle school maturity levels does not apply.
