This week I started giving detention for being late for my class. My students seem to not be afraid of being late. There is no sense of urgency. I can look up the hallway and see the same group just standing socializing in the hallway. Even when the bell rings, there still is no sense of urgency to get to class. They walk as if there is not a care in the world. I'll start my lesson then one by one there are knocks at the door. This constantly disrupts my class. It wastes my time and also the time of students that show up on time. I don't know where this group of kids gets their sense of entitlement. It's as if we owe them something. I plan to start running my class as if it were a real job. I heard a story about a teacher that did this. He even went as far as having them call in when they were not going to be at school. 'mI also looking forward to implementing the social skills lessons. I can't take for granite that my students are learning these things at home.
