Great topics as always. My classroom rules are about the same as your's, act like a human-being, not an anima. :) Actually, the phrasing I use is "Everyone has the right to learn and I have the right to teach. Anyone interfering with those rights should be prepared to deal with the consequences of their actions."

I agree with mr. byrne, but it is also part of the problem. Statements like, "Everyone has the right to learn and I have the right to teach. Anyone interfering with those rights should be prepared to deal with the consequences of their actions." as a part of our rules are not actually understood by some of our students. What they understand is don't act like an animal. It is simple and easy to understand. PC-think makes teachers less effective because students don't always understand the backwards nature of PC expressions.
