So, let's do a quick poll -
Are your students responding extraordinarily impulsively to "normal" situations?
Have any of your students displayed unusually temperamental behavior?
For example, these are the behaviors I saw today:
- shoving their teacher,
- tossing a chair,
- bursting into loud wails and sobs that cause you to worry about a student's ability to breathe
Do they seem unusually focused on inappropriate behaviors?
- perhaps you are finding drawings of penises on items around your room?
- are you collecting their personal devices because they are distracted by other things on their IPads?
- making decisions that you have just told them are WRONG - and yet they do it anyway?
Perhaps it's just me...Please let me know.
