WWSD? 2nd edition
You are four weeks into the school year and it is obvious you have one of those classes. The ones when the students feel free to share their inner thoughts about how fantastic you are as a teacher. They've not had a great deal of success over the last two years, and this is just one more year they'll find a way to botch.
A student wants to use the bathroom, but the last two times you've allowed him to, he apparantly gets constipated as he tries to finish the New York Times Crossword Puzzle. This time, you are determined to teach him that using the bathroom is a privilege. So, you don't let him go.
He then stands in front of you waving his planner/hall pass while you try to teach the last ten minutes of your class. I'm not sure what Spellings would do, but I'd love to hear what you would do?
