The aim of the session is to consider a possible situation and decide in your group what course
of action you would take and whether this is currently implemented in your centre.

1. A student has not done homework for the previous 3 weeks.

Plan of action:

2. Two students talk constantly in their L1 during the lesson. Their continuous assessment
results do not seem to be affected and in all other respects they are model students.

Plan of action:

3. One student annoys you by their actions in class.

Plan of action:

4. A student seems distracted during reading / writing activities. S/he enjoys speaking and
group work, but doesnt settle when s/he is working individually at table.

coming in.

Plan of action:


7. A student is constantly disrupting the lesson and really needs to be talked to by a
coordinator. You have given him/her 3 chances to improve her behaviour but s/he has not

rest of the class?

Plan of action:

8. One student seems a bit of a loner. Other students are reluctant to do pair/ group work
with him/her. S/he doesnt seem to mix with others during breaks. S/he hasnt yet
complained about the way the other students relate to him/her (or dont), but the parents
have indicated their concerns.

Plan of action:
