When a student becomes angry in the class, here is what you should do:
1. Stay calm.
Controlling your emotions is the first step toward controlling your Anger.
2. Be careful.
Stand firm where you can look at the student in question and show the class you are in control of, but far enough to look at all your students.
3. The shield.
Some of your students should not talk or engage with an angry student. Your number one priority is to keep the students safe and calm and not getting them involved.
Generally, it is better not to say or do anything. If an angry student start misbehaving, just continue with what you were doing for now giving the student time to cool down.
5. Calm the student.
Generally, you may need to use some calming and reassuring language to calm the student down.
Words like "Calm down ... I know you're upset… We'll talk about it later ..." or words do that.
6. Pause for a minute
Do not talk to an angry student until he is in a good mood. Continue with your day until you know that the student is ready to listen.
Once you have mastered it, write down how the student behaves. Write down everything that has been said or done and discuss it with all the students closest to or involved in the incident. Make a copy of your records.
8. Contact the parents of the student
Misconduct should be reported to parents. However, resist the urge to give opinions or conclusions. Just provide facts. You do your job and let parents do - or not - do their own thing.
After the student has returned to a state of calm, which may take several hours, briefly explain how he or she will be changed.
10. Provide solid results.
Acting in anger should lead to a rapid increase in results. A full day, being separated from the class with other students is a great place to start.
11. Take your time
You can't go wrong by taking your time responding to verbal attacks, outbursts, angry outbursts, and so on.
Waiting and watching allows you to accurately assess behavior, keep you from losing your temper, and clearly position you as the leader in charge of the class.
