    My name is [This comment/section has been removed for breaching our Community Guidelines/Terms and conditions] I am doing my second teaching practicum at a public school in Colombia with ninth-grade student, currently I am facing a big challenge that is related to Misbehavior and disorder of my students, although I have implemented different strategies to improve my classroom management, some students have not stopped talking in classes, all the classes I have to call their attention and ask them to be quiet.

    I would like to ask you for some recommendations for my problem, which strategies or activities could I use? thank you

    Hi there, welcome to teaching! Behaviour is one of the most tricky areas to manage. We've all struggled so don't worry!

    What is the main issue? When you say they are talking, is this constant during the lesson? When you call them to attention, do they stop but then return to talking? Or not listen at all?

    It's important not to talk over them, otherwise they will never listen. You must insist on silence at the beginning of lessons, especially when you are just starting out. Prioritise this otherwise you won't be able to get through any of the content you have planned. What is the school's policy? You could ask another your supervisor, teacher or senior management member to support you at the beginning of lessons to get the class silent and on board. It is important that the students see you as part of the team and that the same rules apply as with other, more established teachers.

    Here are some links to other threads on this topic that might help but come back to us for more specific advice,
