I have struggled with the idea of rules this year, and this is what I've come
up with. I teach high school, and I'm definitely of the frame of mind that
they know what is right and wrong, and it becomes simplistic to break it down
(raise your hand, follow directions, etc) the way one does for elementary
kids. So this is going to be my *rule* for this year:

The Teacher Has A Right To Teach;
The Student Has A Right To Learn.

Whoever obstructs this from happening will be breaking the rule, and I'll
come up with consequences of some sort. I feel that, for high school kids,
I can use a less physical, more conceptual rule like this. At least I'll
see how it works. The quote, by the way, isn't mine; I saw it written
someplace and I really liked it.

I've been off this list for several months, and I'm looking forward to being
back on it again. I had gone away sometime last February, and those darn
digests just kept piling up, and I put off reading them until there were 30,
40 50, 60, 70 of them, and finally I just deleted all of them and
unsubscribed. I think I've regained my sanity again, so here I am. Hi
everyone!
