5 Ways To Win When Students Test Your Limits

WHY DID YOU DO THAT? It’s crazy.
How do I handle these misbehaving miscreants? These 5 ways….
1. Don’t pick favorite students
Okay, we all have favorite students. What we must avoid is giving them special treatment.
I know teachers who let certain students stay after class to work on projects with them (and miss other classes) simply because they like them more.
2. Stick to your rules
3. Be nice, but firm
It’s so easy to lash out when children begin misbehaving. The other end of the spectrum is to just ignore it. Neither of these will solve the problem. We must respond and not react. We must be in control of ourselves, but we also must be in control of our classroom. We do all of these things, keeping in mind that the relationship we have with the students is one of concern and respect.
