For cleanup and jobs in the artroom, I found that "Table Captains" for any
extended period of time tend to get big heads about their jobs and/or get
bored... so now I strive for equality. In the center of my tables I have
placed an index card with an + in the center and 1,2,3,4 indicated so as to
assign a number to the 4 students at each table.
Easy.... so, "All the Number 3's get the paints", "All the Number 1's clean
up", and of course,,, they do remind me, "You haven't called 4's in awhile"!!!
