Re: Attention getters and discipline ideas

    However, I had good experiences using a bell to get attention, because
it was classy--real brass with ornate decoration, made in India. Had a great
sound and sometimes I appointed designated student bell ringers. So we
never thought of it as insulting or Pavlovian. The "flicking the lights"
method was not for me--too hard for my eyes to adjust.
