Teacher Notes: Students enjoy helping and classroom jobs
gives them a chance for some responsibility as well. During my
teaching career my middle school students really liked having jobs
in the classroom.
I had my students fill out a job application form and then undergo an interview for a class position.
I feel that careers should be infused into all subject areas and
on all grade levels.
From My Homework System Page
For each marking quarter I used three different homework
monitors. The “Collected Homework Monitor” would collect all
homeworks at the beginning of the period. Students in each class
knew that the first thing they had to do when coming into the
classroom was to place the completed homework assignment on
The “Returned Homework Monitor” would take the corrected
homeworks from the left pocket at the beginning of the class and
return them to the students. If the student was absent the
monitor would place the paper back in the “Returned Homework”
The “Homework Recording Monitor” would take the page
protected paper out and write the number of the homework
assignment, date and assignment on the paper. The homework sheet
in the page protector was then returned to the folder. Students
who had been absent or not sure of an assignment would then take
that sheet to copy missing homework assignments and then replace
it in the folder.
