I just took a long term sub position, and I am needing help with a chatty classroom. I have tried the teachers advice, tried clipping down like I was told to do, and tried saying "I'm looking for the table that is sitting quietly like I asked" to add some sort of competition for them and NOTHING is working. I get them quiet for a few minutes and they are right back to talking. I gave them a test today and told them they CANNOT talk during it because I would assume they are cheating and explained the consequences of cheating on a test and they didn't care. Does anyone know of any tricks that really worked for them? I would like to nip this in the bud while I am still new.
