I work at a low income school that is 80% Hispanic. I have great relationships with many of my students, but the mix of students in my 4th period class is just plain toxic. It is almost all boys (in a class of 30, I think I have 6 girls) and they are all high-energy and need the class's attention, even if it's negative. I took the Tools for Teaching course and tried standing expressionless until they are silent and ready to move on. I did this for a couple weeks, and I spend over 50% of my lesson doing absolutely nothing but standing there. My higher achievers began rolling their eyes and the class fell behind. . I tried calling home. I tried sending them to the office. I have tried rewarding them. I have tried "get to know you" days. I tried to build relationships and be positive. I tried sending them to the hall. They continue to make disrespectful and immature noises, shout, and be continually disrespectful. The same students are fine in my other classes but think 4th period is a joke. Please help!
