How come some professors/teachers have control over their classroom and others don't? What's the trick? ?
I have been in classes grade school and college level that the teacher has had full control over the classroom and the students would listen and do as they say. However I have had other teachers who have students who backtalk to them and talk during class. This is even in college. Why do some teachers and professors have control over their class while others don't? Is there a trick to it? How do you earn respect as the educator?

The trick is to keep them entertained / amazed. Use illustration when ever necessary. Always split the time you will be spending on the topic. If the topic is monotonous, try giving manuals for that before hand. Always prepare for something extra than the allotted time.
Give audience a moment to think grasp (never allow them more than that/ pausing for more time you will lose attention of the class).
Use punch lines, cliche phase to draw attention, to separate the relaxation/ pause time and attentive period. Make it interactive, ask questions, feedback.
Host always control what audience are thinking!
