But continue to be consistent

I agree that you need to work on building a relationship, but continue to be consistent about rules. One of my favorite sayings is, "It's ok not to get it, it's not ok not to try."

Purpose

I think the purpose of sarcasm defines whether it is "bad" or not. If the purpose is to mock students then it is harmful, even if it goes over their heads. If the purpose is to make a silly joke,...
