Re: cleanup and management ideas for a student teacher


Date: Wed Sep 15 2004 - 20:34:05 PDT

Hi ALison,
    Re cleanup:
When all else fails, tell them all to pick up 20 things. WOrks like a
charm. For some reason they enjoy counting!

If they are ignoring your cleanup request, tell them "anyone still
working after the count of three is going in the guest book" or your
equivalent discipline thing, and then DO IT.

Ask the nearest student to pick up all of something you see that one kid
could pick up in order to make a dent in the mess. Keep adding more
jobs to specific kids.

Tell them that no one can wash their hands until everyone at their table
agrees that their whole table is clean.

Make them sit down at their table before they lne up.
