As I begin to plan for the coming school year, I am looking for =

classroom cleaning every period. I EXPECT them to do their share, but =
there are the students who always leave paint in brushes, don't close =
the lids properly, or simply leave spills or messes. Usually this is =
done when I am assisting another student(s) across the room and the bell =
rings for the kids to leave. The last several years I have used a 10 =
point bonus system where everyone in the class gets bonus points at the =
end of the marking period if everyone in their class period has cleaned =
up after themselves. Any time someone forgot to clean up, the class was =
docked a point and so on. Do any of you use a grading system for =
clean-up? Are there any tricks to motivate them? Once again, it is not =
the entire population of students that have the problem, so I don't want =
to penalize them for the laziness of their classmates.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions!
