Last year the art room had a "sad" radio - destroyed by students fighting
over radio stations.
This year we will move into a new building (school starts
tomorrow) along with a new radio with cassette and C.D. (bravely
purchased by yours truely) I plan to choose a "sketch of the week" from
each class. The winner will get to bring in their own music or may
choose the radio station. All music must be school appropriate and I
still control the volumn, plus the radio will remain behind my desk - out
of reach, hopefully. If there is not a winner, because an assignment was
not due, then I get to choose - I also prefer classical - which really
calms things down after several whines and moans.
I hope this works, I'll let you know if it was a bad idea.
