I think the class meeting with just girls and with just boys is a good idea. However, I would include a male (maybe the principal) at the meeting as well as yourself. I think it is important that the kids know the principal is aware of their poor choices.

Whatever you say to your students needs to be reinforced by the principal with his words and his body language.

I would also be contacting the parents of the students who are using the inappropriate language. They need to know that what they are saying at home/what others may be saying in the home or what they are allowing their children to watch are being repeated at school.

Don't you wish for the good-old-days when you could have washed out the child's mouth with soap??
