I just got back from coffee with a friend-of-a-friend who is going into elementary teaching. She asked me how I deal with run-of-the-mill defiance: most kids aren’t completely out of control, but many students do talk back from time to time or respond with stubbornness. She told me that most…
I use mostly the narrate their behaviour tactic, but combine it with sharing my own feelings about the situation too. I’ll say “I feel like you’re acting like _________ because _________, is that right?” and “I understand why you would feel frustrated/angry/etc., but I’m not feeling respected (or whatever other applicable feeling) right now, can you understand why I would feel that way?”. I find that the kids are usually able to empathize with me and make a real effort to change their behaviour once I interact with them as a person sharing their feelings rather than just an authority figure. I’m a substitute middle school teacher though, so maybe this wouldn’t work all the time or in every grade, but I find it’s pretty effective!
