This is a tough one and I’ve had two or three this year who will call out - in a disruptive way. Sometimes it is when I’m speaking. I have one great class that causes me to struggle because of several who have a bit of a problem with knowing the appropriate time to engage (not in the middle of a question or when someone else is talking.) I encourage kids to have a pencil and paper or a tablet in hand to jot down notes of what they want to say - sometimes they are afraid they’ll forget.
Other times, when it is class discussion, I use poker chips. Each student gets two. When they want to interject, they spend their chip. Every student must participate twice before anyone can have a third input. It is a daily grade and so easy to assess b/c everyone must give up their chips.
This article takes it much further and is a good one if you’re struggling with this.
“Namely, how do you deal with a student who, despite receiving consequence after consequence, continues to call out in class?
Before we get to the solution, it’s important to note that there are times during a normal school day when you may want to allow your students to respond to you or their fellow classmates without raising their hand”

What do you all think? Is civic education getting the short end of the stick? What can we do about it?
In my state, taking civics is required for both graduation and A Very Special Scholarship.
However, it’s a semester course, and from my experience is not taught by a teacher who is passionate about the subject…. It’s often an afterthought of, “Oh, we need someone to teach civics. Coach J can do it, he’s got a free hour.”
I am actually seeing this happen more and more in different subjects… including history itself.
