What do you think is a good teaching technique? I've heard that if you start off hard and then liten up that it works best or is it best to just be mean all the time. I think I've dug my self in a hole for the last 3 years when it comes to keeping kids in line. I think that I need to start keeping the hammer down the whole time, but on the other hand the kids usually have fun in my class and I think learn things. I have rules in place don't get me wrong but they just seem to take advantage of the freedom I give them. I'm guessing I will figure it out after a few more years.
