Most of the teachers quit their job because of trouble-maker students and noise level in the classroom. As a teacher , I have tried many ways to make my classes quiter.
One of the methods I implemented in my classes.
Last year with my 3rd graders ,I used a method based on tickets.Each student has 3 tickets.In an inappropriate behavior like talking without raising hands or speaking in mother tongue (You can add more), they have to give one of their tickets.If their tickets are all gone,they don't have a chance to take a big star on the behavior list I prepared before.You can try this method.It worked in my classes :)
The great behavior game

Many teachers in many classrooms spend the majority of their time in the basement of the taxonomy, never really addressing or developing the higher order thinking skills that kids need to develop. We end up with rote and boring classrooms. Rote and boring curriculum. Much of today’s standardized testing rigorously tests the basement, further anchoring the focus of learning at the bottom steps, which is not beneficial for our students.

Many of us dream of going to a foreign country and learning some of the local language so we can at least make conversation. But we don't want to spend years doing it. Is there any way to learn a language in a week or two, the way those ads on the internet promise? It's hard to believe, but in some cases, the answer is yes.
The issue of how we use social media for our own development as teachers and as digitally skilled individuals, is one that I believe is of vital importance though, not just because it can enable us to keep developing as teachers through the content, ideas, resources and above all people it gives us access to, but also because the way use digital media for our own development should guide and influence the way we use it with our students and build their digital literacies and communication skills.
I’ve long believed that teacher development, especially when it comes to technology, is best done online and over a longer period than can be accomplished with face to face training courses. Online study gives teachers the opportunity to try out new ideas with their students, think things through, and reflect on what they have learned. Working online, they can also grow within a community of teachers from around the world, learn from each other and share their learning experiences. These principles have been at the heart of two new courses I have been developing in partnership with CELT Athens. I will be tutoring these courses from September 2012, so follow the link if you would like to find out more.
