Clip to ScrapBook #4

she said: "okay, I'll put them in my backpack"
you say: "that will do" - with a nod/tone/look that implies that's exactly what you wanted all along

Talker who won't move - I agree with knocking the grade. You can't physically move them, and a power struggle is not what you want.

"This is the last time I am going to ask you to move. If you choose not to, the alternative is __ points off your grade." - If they don't move, walk over to your grade book, note it, and go on with class.
