Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help Forum. Not only is there concern for the student's (students') safety but also for the teacher. On Field Trips I used the buddy system so no one would get separated.

It certainly helps to know your students and for them to know that you only want the best for them. A Chinese student who happened to be a gang member flashed a butterfly knife one day and said "give me an A or I'll run you through." Knowing that he had a kind heart, I said "then you'll have to run me through because I can only give you what you earn." I also told him to put that knife away or I'd have to turn it into the administration. He put it away and ultimately earned an A anyway!
P.S. How to start? Do the research first. Organize what you will write with an outline. Have a good thesis statement that will catch the reader's attention. Write your essay. Wait at least one day so you can proofread carefully. If you need further help on thesis statements, outline, etc. just ask!
