Speaking from a Sub's point of view: They SHOULD check every teacher's sub
folder, especially at the HS level. How's a sub supposed to know where to
go if there's a fire/drill? Who's diabetic and gets to have a snack the
others don't get, or gets to go to the nurse for blood test or whatever?
How up to date are your seating charts in the folder? Who in admin is in
charge of discipline, and what is his/her intercom #? Which kid in each
class can I trust to tell the truth/do the right thing/run an errand?
All this stuff should be in the sub folder, PLUS legitimate plans for the
day, even if they are simple. The kids aren't stupid; they know when you're
leaving "busy work" for them, and they behave accordingly.
