I had a rough class last year, with two particularly disruptive kids who would cause trouble no matter where I seated them in the room. A desk in the back of the room didn't work - others could still see them and they could see - and communicate - with the class. Sending them to another teacher for time out is not an option, and I really prefer to handle my discipline myself rather than involve a fairly ineffective administration. What I would like to do this year, if I can figure out a way, is create a spot in the room where I could truly isolate a kid, but still see him or her. I'm thinking a curtain of some sort (how?), or screen. Has anyone ever tried anything like this? What did you use and how was it set up? Did it work? When I was a kid, the nuns would put us in the coat closet, but in the absence of coat closets and because I want to keep the child in the room, that's not an option in this day and age. Suggestions?
