  1. Ha! I’m doing dictación in Spanish tomorrow and I’m gonna do this if necessary. My kids will settle down but I havn’t gotten to the total silence thingy.

  2. It’s one area where I have to watch myself from showing the class that I am pissed at a kid (something I never will do since I did not become a teacher to get angry at children), because there is always one who can’t shut up as directed. Robert’s idea will help immensely with that.

    1. Robert Harrell

      It’s really important when implementing this, that we don’t do it out of anger. What if Thomas Edison had gotten angry when an experiment didn’t work out? Would we have had all of his wonderful inventions? I just admit that it didn’t work this time, so we are tossing the “failed experiment” and trying again. Now we know what won’t work, let’s see what will work.

      In the same way, when I have to enforce the seating chart (yes, I let it relax during the course of the year), I don’t do it out of anger but as a recognition that my students still need the “scaffolding” or support of assigned seats in order to meet the rigor of my class (active attention and participation for the entire period).

      1. You remarked on moving students to seats where they’d be able to concentrate better somewhere else, Robert, and I used that today with 5th graders. There are mainly 2 chatty kids that I needed to re-seat. I talked with the class about it – that it wasn’t meant as a punishment, but intended to be a help to them. Later in class another boy asked for a different seat. (Wise choice for him to make, in addition to showing humility.) So thanks for that insight. I may have NSRSCA too.
