We Must Protect This Classroom!

Nancy Simmons of Online Science Degrees chimes in with a guest post on Learn Me Good about how to take control of your classroom.

Most teachers know how to control their classes, but when one or two rogue elements succeed in creating havoc and causing a ruckus, things get out of hand and the teacher does not really know what to do... The only way they can regain control is if they appeal to a higher authority or use their powers to threaten the students in some way.

Hat Tip: For more on taking control of the classroom, check out Larry Ferlazzo's recent article from the Teacher Leaders Network titled Giving Classrooms a Purpose.
