I want your opinions on this. If your class misbehaves in a special area (art, etc.) is that your fault as the classroom teacher or the special area teacher's fault? I hate to label blame at all. I oftentimes feel like if my class misbehaves in specials, I am looked at as an ineffective teacher. I believe that is up to the special area teacher to be in control of each class that is in their room at that particular time. If my class misbehaves, then their management system isn't working, not mine. Of course, the classroom teacher should discuss expected specials behavior, too. Thoughts?
