Secret Student Behavior
July 02, 2008
A trick I use to ensure good class behavior when walking in the halls, at assemblies, etc. is to tell the class beforehand that I will be watching a certain student without saying which student. If that student behaves well, the entire class receives a privilege. The reward might be an extra ten minutes of free computer or reading time. Since none of the students know who was being watched, everyone behaves so as to not let down the class.
