People, give me a reality check.
There is an unspoken rule that you don’t throw pencils at your teacher, right?
Well, whatever. Geneva Conventions are lifted in the no-man’s land where I try to teach.
What exactly IS the appropriate response to this situation?
Should the teacher:
A) Use “I” statements to express disappointment at the lack of respect displayed by the student.
B) Assign a higher order thinking question to the class, asking them to describe why someone might choose to whip a pencil across a classroom at one’s teacher, providing details to support their position. Be sure to provide the state rubric to guide their response.
C) Go to one’s desk and put on one’s coat.
D) Start a firestorm of chalk, pens, crayons and don’t stop until they provide a motorcade out of there.
