I completely agree with Ira’s comment. When I was a beginning teacher I would have loved to have had this list of techniques. But then I learned the real answer to avoiding the problem of students acting up, talking, etc. It is not a matter of controlling the students at all.
As I was reading this post I had the same thoughts as Ira - why all this effort to control the kids? What I am hearing is a very traditional, teacher-centered classroom philosophy and an attitude of Us vs Them when it comes to students and teachers. The techniques and their underlying beliefs suggest a teacher-centered paradigm – the students sit and listen to the teacher delivering the information. That won’t work any more . . . . .
