This free PDF gives you a list of 20+ quick comebacks, one-liners, and stabilizers to help de-escalate a situation before it spirals out of control.
Classroom conflict is inevitable, but there are incredibly effective ways to respond using “connector comebacks” that can defuse a potential power struggle or classroom disruption. At the same time, these responses open the door for you to CONNECT with students later on when emotions are less volatile and minds are more willing to listen. Page 3 contains the complete list of 20 "connector comebacks."
Teachers can practice rehearsing "comebacks" and "one-liners" with a fun set of TRADING CARDS on pages 5 and 6. Use them to de-stress and blow off a little steam at your next faculty meeting or professional development activity.
