Given what he had heard about last year's fourth graders, Mr. Christenson expected to have a tough time this year in fifth grade. But, little did he imagine how bad it would get. Thirty seconds into the science lesson, noticing Tim looking lost, he shouts, "Tim, where is your textbook? You know you're supposed to have it." Tim shrugs. Mr. Christenson looks down at his notes.

"Okay, now let's pick up with Mercury." Just then laughter erupts in the back of the room. Glaring at the offenders, Mr. Christenson asks, "Maria, really, is Mercury humorous? Write 25 times 'Mercury is the closest planet to the sun.'" Mr. Christenson glances at his notes to remember his place, but is distracted by Billy leaning on his arms.

"Billy, what is our rule about the proper way of sitting? Explain to the class how posture affects our attentiveness." Billy mumbles something inaudible about not feeling well. Mr. Christenson walks over to Billy's desk so that he can hear the explanation better. Meanwhile, Alicia and Marti, at the front, start giggling. They will be visited by Mr. Christenson next. Discuss the origins of Mr. Christenson's management problems and their probable impact on learning.
