I am an NQT and we have recently had a mix up of our bottom set year 10 classes due to behaviour issues. I have had my 'new' class for a couple of weeks however none of them are from my old class so I don't know any of them at all. They are all 'known' offenders around the school and behaviour management is a massive issue. I don't teach instead I have to spend the whole lesson just trying to contain them in the room. They won't listen to me at all, instead talk over me or complain that they are never going to learn anything in this class. I just don't know what to do with them, they do little/no work (coursework based course). I have tried the shouting method - doesn't work, I have tried the non-shouting method - doesn't work. I am trying to follow the behaviour policy but in our school it involves giving 3 warnings then sending them to another room. The problem is it is pretty much the whole class so I can't get rid of all of them. A lot of them get kicked out of lessons in other subjects and are on all kinds of whole school reports but they don't care about their behaviour. Has anyone got any tips for what I can do? There is no point planning really fun/interesting lessons because they just don't listen. I see them everyday of the week and I feel like crying at the thought of having them.
