CLASSROOM MANAGEMENT/TEACHER TIPS
Submitted: March 1, 2003
have classroom rules posted with numbers attached to them. When a student breaks
a rule he/she must sign their name in "The Book", a simple binder with
looseleaf paper in it. They must also put the date and number of the rule they
broke. They receive a writing assignment associated with the class they are in.
For example I make my Civics class write parts of the Constitution. After signing
3 times I notify their parents and they lose a recess. I start off fresh after
each report card. This works very well and after 1 or 2 calls I usually never
need to make another one. It is also helpful when parents want to question why
their child received a poor conduct grade. I just show them the book!
