I'm a MAT student, and our assignment is to ask other teachers to explain what they would and wouldn’t do if faced with certain classroom management situations. In your reply, please describe and explain at least one ineffective action/response and why (what NOT to do) AND at least one effective action/response and why (what TO do and why), in your opinion. Please be very specific about what you would and wouldn’t do and say when faced with the situation and why. Here's the situation: A student consistently falls asleep during class—during group work, during whole class instruction, whenever. This has happened at least three times per week. You have tried moving the student, but even on the front row he still falls asleep. The student does not have any documented medical issues that would explain this. Thanks so much for your help!
