What Would You Do Wednesday: Scenario 3

Each week we will bring you a short scenario to address issues that you, your colleagues and students might face. How would you respond to these scenarios? Would you file a report, or do something different? Talk to your colleagues about these situations - the classroom should be a safe learning environment for students AND instructors!


From the very beginning of the quarter, a student in your history class frequently interrupts your lectures by asking questions that are not related to the topic. She is also usually the person who blurts out answers when you pose a question to the class. In all other respects, this student is doing well – good test scores, assignments in on time, attendance perfect. But now towards the end of the quarter, you are totally frustrated by what you think is this student’s need to be noticed AND so are the other students.

Is it too late in the quarter to do anything about this? What do you do? How do you address this with the student? What do you say to other students? Who can help you with this situation?

Post your comments below!

If you'd like someone from the 5 Star Consortium to follow up with you regarding this scenario, please email
