Hi fellow art teachers:

Going into my third year of teaching art in high school, I find that
discipline is by far the most challenging problem for me. Especially in the
basic studio course, which many of the students take as a requirement for
graduation (in NY), quite a few students show little respect. I'm well liked
by the students and wish that I could get on with the teaching of art and not
be bogged down by the disruptive student. I realize that how I present
myself from the beginning determines how I am viewed the rest of the year.
So since September is just around the corner, I would appreciate all creative
suggestions of what works for you. After school detention and if need be
administration detention are possibilities but a last resort.
Thanks in advance.
