Students have been disrespectful at times this year. I usually just hold them after class or pull them out and try talking to them. Am I using a wrong strategy when I say to them "Is there something I am doing wrong? Do you not like Spanish? Are you just bored?" I talked to a young lady (10th grade) and she responded no to these questions. Perhaps she just wants my attention? She tends to be the attention-seeking type. Anyway, I told her that I expect a little more respect, especially since I try my best to show her respect. I have been working hard these past two years to show all of my students respect, yet they still can be disrespectful. I also strive to plan activities that maintain their interests (I think that stems from my question here). Is there a magical way that seasoned teachers have that prevent student disrespect? I know that I am not alone when thinking that teaching would be more enjoyable if students showed more respect! :unsure: ¡Gracias a todos! Thanks to all!
