Hi everyone! I'm a first-year high school teacher and have two periods where excessive talking is an issue. It's not just one or two students, it's quite a few of them. I really want to avoid writing up referrals, but my patience is wearing thin and I can't write referrals for the WHOLE class! Please, what are some strategies that are useful for excessive talkers?? The whole stop, stare, and wait routine is no longer working and it's annoying the quiet kids who are trying to learn. HELP! Thanks!
