What Is The Solution?
I simply do not understand how students can change in one weekend from motivated (for the most part) and respectful to what I have now. I want to chalk it up to puberty, but even that wouldn't account for it.
It isn't just this year's class either. It seems to be this same thing every year.
Now comes the problem...what to do about it!
I have tried a plethora of things from rewards to taking away privileges and special activities to trying to ignore the problems. Nothing seems to be working.
It seems with each passing day I get more frustrated and the kids just get more and more rowdy (although there might be a correlation between those two items...hmmmm).
So, all like 10 readers out there, what are your ideas, thoughts, and suggestions? Don't hold back, share away!
