My instructor asked us to create a student behavior situation, to think through possible effective and ineffective teacher responses to the situations, and then to ask “real teachers” to explain what they would and wouldn’t do in this situation. In your reply, explain at least one ineffective action/response and why AND at least one effective action/response and why, in your opinion. Please feel free to be very specific about what you would and wouldn’t do and say when faced with the situation and why. Here is my scenario: A teacher in a middle school classroom is introducing the lesson using a PowerPoint presentation. A slide comes up with a question. This teacher poses this question to her students and many raise their hands to be called upon. When the teacher calls on a student another student who had his/her hand up huffs and loudly exclaims, “Hey, that’s not fair you called on him/her last time!” The called upon student pauses and waits not knowing whether to answer the question or not.
