Yes. A disruption is a disruption no matter the kind. Something to think about: Teachers of the best run classrooms are very proactive. Instead putting a lot of time into reactive management or consequences, a mind-set that is constantly concerned with What should happen to ______ for doing _____ ?, these teachers are constantly asking themselves How can I prevent _______ from occurring in the first place? Their strategies are all about preventing so they wonít be put in the position of giving warnings. If, for example, students are calling out or running the question would be, "Why do students think itís okay to call-out or run in my classroom?" Do these teachers ever punish students? Sure. But punishment is a rare event as opposed to a daily, period by period ordeal. In 28 years of teaching I can count on one hand the number behavior problems that were not a direct result of something I did I didnít do.
