Are you looking for a proactive method to regain classroom management in your French classes? Here is an effective way: Reward the students with a certificate when you "catch" them following one or more of these classroom guidelines (TIP: Place these guidelines on a poster in a prominent spot in the room). Simply get your principal to sign his/her name on the certificate and then run several copies off to give out during the month. Every student who receives a certificate automatically has his/her name entered for a pizza party (or some other fun activity) at month's end. Highly effective!
