Holy Updates, Batman!

It appears that I am on an updating frenzy. Amazing what one will do to procrastinate.... *grins*

I took a mental health evening last night... I did no work what-so-ever. And did I ever pay for it! *grins* I had an impromptu meeting with my administrator today. *sighs* He's always supportive, but I usually get uncomfortable being constantly looked at, questioned, and so on. For tomorrow, he wants me to come up with two class rules. Not the class rules that are in place right now, but two non-negotiable rules (and one negotiable) that would make my class run smoothly. *frowns* Oh, and long term plans this semester, unit planning, and daily planning. *crosses eyes* Damn! I have been flying off the seat of my pants for a bit! *grumbles*

As well, one student is being verbally abused at home with random occurences of physical abuse, two are mutilating themselves and seriously considering suicide (one planned to do it this morning), and one is so full of intense rage, I'm afraid if a hair touches him, he will explode.


*scratches head* I know it sounds funny, but I'm seriously considering teaching them a bit of yoga. Anything to arm and prepare them during this calm before the storm.

damn.

Good luck there.

Classroom rules are a good idea. It took me a while to settle on mine and I finally got them posted up yesterday...here's to more control!

*laughs* Good job in posting them all! It sounded like a lot of work.

nah. Just took me that long to figure out what the rules were. There's only 4.

What are your thoughts about starting each class off with a sharing circle??

*shrugs* I don't know. I don't think I know about sharing circles enough in order to not make them appear "hokey".
