how was the library run in the past?  Is there a particular need for a
written discipline policy?  Elementary school kids are a LOT different
than high school!!!  I can usually quiet them down by just stopping and
waiting.  It doesn't usually take long. (I have a cow bell for
emergencies - if it is REALLY too loud and out of hand, I ring the bell.
If I have to ring it again, the class leaves the library and returns to
class.  Teachers do NOT like the class returning, so they usually are
quite prompt in addressing the behavior issue (usually with admonitions
or threats before the next library period).  Individual problems are
dealt with individually.   Tamah Graber  tgraber@umd5.umd.edu
