I've written a post about a recent understanding I've come to about student "personal space," and wondered if others might have had similar experiences. To summarize my post, I had some classroom management issues with students who felt like I would get too physically close to them, and it turned out that in their lives the only time adult males would get that close would be to beat them. After asking them how close I could get without them feeling threatened, we now work well together. Have you had similar experiences?
