When i taught English I did have a lot of those "last chance" types of
groups and I found that being calm in face of the storms of their emotions
and continuing to let them know I liked them and was interested in them
resulted in good behavior most of the time. Sometimes this is hard to do,
but not getting too excited about some of the crazy stuff helps. Oh well,
of course, just when everything is going too well...(finish the sentence)
