I have to be mean teacher today

Wednesday, October 21, 2009

My last class - the one with the junior thugs - apparently was not well-behaved yesterday, when I was absent. The substitute teacher, who usually enjoys my classes, said they were throwing bits of tile. Not just the "bad" kids, but the ones who usually behave, too.

I warned the students that if they continued to throw tile (they do it when I'm there too, but they're sneaky), then the whole class will be off the mural project and working on paper. With other projects. Boring stuff. (I'll make it boring.)

Today's the day.

They have three days this week to show me that they can behave. If they do, we'll try the mural again. If they don't, they can look forward to art on paper and art in books for the next three months.

    That's not mean. That's teaching them responsibility :)
