1. Student with ADHD and Violent Tendancies

1.1.1. Ensure that the behaviour and safety plan is brought with teacher on field trip. Other teachers, parent volunteers and E.A's should all understand portions of the behaviour plan.

1.1.2. Student triggers should be understood and mapped out prior to field trip. Triggers can be anything from too many layers of clothing or feeling their answers are not being heard during discussion. Teachers need to take preventative measures to foresee possible scenarios. Eyes should always be on this student.

1.1.3. Have a one on one conversation with student. Dialogue would sound like: " James, I am excited to be going on this field trip tomorrow with you and your classmates. As a reminder, I need you to be making some good choices in order for you and everyone to have fun. If you become frustrated or feel like you need a cool off, please come see me so we can work through it together."
