Question Detail

I have worked Title 1 schools before, but this year I am struggling with one of my classes. The students are older, disruptive, defiant, and angry. I'm trying to be firm and loving. How do I create an environment that is nurturing, yet allows for teaching to take place?

      Hello! Have you tried having the students help you develop a code of conduct? Sometimes giving them a little ownership goes a long way. I would also have them help develop a list of consequences. *Be careful with the later as students tend to be tougher on themselves compared to the norm. It will make things hard to enforce.
