Except for Eye Rolling Emile.
Emile caught my eye early in the first week as I talked a bit about the rigor of the course. Eye roll. Later I asked folks to tell me a bit about themselves as I called the roster the first time. Eye roll.
It's just one student in one class, but now when 10 am comes around I don't even want to go. He sits in my line of vision at the back of the class. Whenever I suggest anything I might think is a cool or interactive way to discuss the material, eye roll. It's only been a couple of days, but he's harshed one's mellow, to use the old vernacular.
Q: When you have a student with a bothersome tic or behavior, what do you do?
