I am at a loss with one of my classes. As a whole, they refuse to follow procedures and expectations. I have tried everything I know to try- reteaching procedures, explaining the reasoning behind them, practicing them repeatedly, calling and conferencing with more parents than I have in the rest of my career combined, calling team meetings to discuss expectations, positive incentives and rewards, revoking privileges, different styles of teaching and activities- nothing seems to last longer than the immediate class period. The next day I’m starting all over again. On top of that, this class fights. Constantly. I hear “shut up” and “no, you shut up” and “get off my stuff” and “give that back” and “she hit me” constantly. I can’t seem to get through to them about compassion. Or the difference between tattling and important information.
My other classes are fine. I can’t keep going the way I’ve been going with this one. I don’t know what to do. What are your thoughts and ideas, Tumblr education?
I can’t figure out how to let EVERYONE reply to that with the new format. So send any and all suggestions to my ask box please. Thanks :)
