Oh Charlotte, please know that you don't speak for everyone.I have enjoyed
this debate so much--it's the first time I've seen classroom management
issues really debated on the list. Have you ever watched a full-fledged
debate? Debaters do get testy, do challenge eachother in potentially
personal ways. I think that every person who responded to this issue is
entirely correct in terms of their own context. You do what you can, the
best you can. There is nothing wrong with suggestions that what we do can
be done better. Certainly that's what we tell our students. Kevin's
insights are extremely valuable to me as are all the other suggested ways
of dealing with disruption. Thanks everyone, and I hope Kevin we havn't
heard from you or anyone else for the last time. Peggy
