Back to the 8th grade science class. We're getting to the end of these stories. I should finish them before the end of this year. This particular technique works in all sorts of classes, but it was particularly helpful here.
"This isn't my seat."
Turns out a boy was in her seat, so she took another girl's seat, displacing her, too. I only got the boy to move by letting him know this was a punishable offense. (Detention.)
Naturally, this incident made it into my note.
Wednesday, there was a new warning on the board about assigned seats or detentions.
Yet, I still got the questions. They wanted to sit next to their friends. (Obviously, this was not a good idea.)
Instead of a flat no, I gave them a choice. Sure, they could sit there. But the payment was a detention.
I got no takers. I guess the price was too high.
