Classroom Management, Engagement and Motivation
A. Student’s behavior
I will deal with Joey a student scenario 1. The student’s behavior includes talking loudly and off topic and also talking out of turn. Joey seems to speak when no one has permitted him to do so.

He will need to explain what he knows to the rest of the class when a topic is being introduced so that he can speak less for the rest of the lesson. He will also have the role of teaching peers regarding a problem, he understands well to utilize his t...
