Re: Student was Jacking-Off In Class

I haven't had this exact situation (thankfully) but the frustrating thing I find about this kind of thing is that I'm armed with zero background info about my students.

I mean, if I were in this situation I'd wanna know_ Is this kid showing other...socially innapropriate development? Is this kid basically showing healthy development but needs some well timed redirection? That kind of thing would really impact whether I reacted by just pulling him aside and gently advised him or whether I notified his homeroom teacher in a more formal way.

I know I'm a supplementary teacher and generally speaking I don't want to be that deep 'in the loop' but...

Also_ It seems like he could be doing the same thing in art class, music class, soccer practice, during a long violin cadenza at his orchestra recital etc. and as long as he doesn't do it in home room it'll never get addressed as there isn't a lot of coordination between teachers.

It's not that I wanna be all Big Brothery with my students but in the interest of their general well being...

I don't know what you guys were like in middleschool and in highschool, but I knew damn well that that sort of stuff wasn't socially acceptable. Come on people -- this isn't normal behaviour for a middleschooler much less from older students, and saying "aw he didn't know any better" is a cop-out that really doesn't help anybody, certainly not the student.

I personally think that 83travelinman's advice is solid.

Grade 5 isn't middle school, and in Korea the kid could be 8 or 9 years old.

Yeah, I was mostly referring to the posts about the older kids (middle and high school... and university o.O ).

This sounds like it's straight out of Ham on Rye.
