Clip to ScrapBook #6

I teach 6th grade and agree with all of the above. Post directions for each activity. Set tons of expectations and have a procedure for everything. Get to know them. Ask them lots of questions.

Right or wrong, many kids at my school operate by a system where you have to show them respect before they show it back. Hard to say specifically without knowing what she's done but emphasize and praise the positives and build class community. Try to talk to a few of the ringleaders privately one on one. Talk about their leadership potential and get them on board.
