Talk Ticket

Why should I do it:

  • Let’s the student know you are interested and concerned
  • Reduces students’ anxiety that they’re issue, concern, problem, and thoughts will not be addressed
  • Addresses the student and potential disruption immediately
  • Teaches students to delay gratification
  • Saves class time and prevents disruptions
  • Provides structure, predictability, and consistency
  • Validates students’ feelings, emotions, and individual value
  • Makes students feel they are being heard
  • Increase compliance
  • Reduces disruptiveness of students

When should I do it:

  • When a student has a strong desire to share things with you but doesn’t know how to wait to share
  • When a student interrupts a lot, asks questions at inappropriate times, is impatient, or has trouble delaying gratification
  • When a student is agitated, angry, and wants to stop everything to resolve their personal issues
