Hi Everyone: I'm starting my second year of teaching (2nd grade). I have always had allot of issue with management even in my internships. The class tends to gets loud, off-task, etc. My first year wasn't particularly successful. I learned allot of what not to do. I want to start this year out strong, have high expectations and get it right. I am contemplating not using a clip chart. I wasn't a fan of all that management and I feel it focuses on negative behavior allot. I also always had a problem remembering when to move clips and I felt it its based on the mood of the teacher (hate to say it). I am very nervous about not using it though but most teachers (veterans) on my team never use a chart. We will probably be using class dojo with some kind of reward attached to it. I'd love any thoughts you have on using/not using one. Also, what would do you use for consequences if you don't use a chart? Thanks.
