Thanks to those who have answered my request for ideas so far. However I'll
try not to be defensive but clarify my position. I believe that my lesson
plans are good and that my first two years have been quite successful.
Discipline is a problem in general in my school and I have incorporated many
of the suggestions already although I will try some of the other suggestions
too. As far as bathroom passes, I use a system that is quite successful in
my beginning studio class. In my advance classes it doesn't seem to be a
problem. Each sememster I give the students an artistic bathroom pass sheet
of paper with 4 numbers on it. They are allowed 4 passes to the bathroom
with no questions asked. (tear off the cornered numbers) However if they
hand the pass back to me at the end of the marking period unused, a 100 is
averaged in with their other grades. Some teachers raise a grade from a B to
an A. Whatever works for you. The students hardly go to the bathroom as a
result and if they do they space it out so they don't use more than four.
Thanks again for the thoughtful ideas.....I love this chatroom.
