help! large talkative class


Date: Sat Aug 16 2003 - 10:04:53 PDT

Trying to nip this talkative class in the bud before it goes too far
all 25 (8th graders) practically are good friends, am making seating
arrangment to
seat away from their closest friends, but class is so small they are still
together. (another 2 classes are similare but not quite as bad)
What is the consensis on seating , Do most of you have seating chart or let
kids sit where they want?
I am adding a 10 pt to my rubric for diligent and consistent working on
so they will automatically loose 10 pts if they were talking too much, or
around , getting up during projects.
Any tried and true ideas, I just don't believe it is possible for them to
sit by
friends and still have an orderly class?????
THanks for any advice, my 2nd year, when will I learn!!!?
