how many times should you have to tell a student/s to sit down during a sixty minute class period? ten? twenty? thirty? more? tell them to stop talking long enough to listen to directions. tell them to get out a book, or a pencil/pen or a piece of paper and not have it take them over half the class to do that cuz they are busy doing other things like walking aimlessly around or asking to go to the bathroom so that they can answer a text message. that is if they don't sit down and try to text on the dl cuz they are so slick a teacher would never notice them doing that.

how many times do you tell a student/s to do something productive that does not involve practicing his boxing moves or copying someone else's work or throwing something at someone or stealing something from a bookbag. how many times/ways do you beg a student/s to behave like a student in a classroom appropriate way. and i don't mean sitting there silently staring and listening to the teacher spout crap. i mean work as they talk/multitask.

i mean before it becomes ridiculous and disrupting and you should have the right to ask them to leave so that the few kids in class that want to do more then socialize/be stupid in school can?
