Is there an effective technique you use to quiet your students when you need to regain their attention? I teach Spanish, so I thought this might be cute: I will say: "The teacher said" (2x) The students will respond with "silence" I teach Spanish, so it will sound like this: T: La maestra dijo (2x) S: !!SILENCIO!! Of course, I would explain this on the first day and do a few dry runs. Anyone think this is too corny?
