Sharing Seating Charts with Students

Found in: learning students' names; seating assignments

I always assign seats for the purposes of helping me learn names, taking attendance and controlling behavior. But getting students in the proper seats the first day (and every time I change the arrangement) was always a headache. This year I tried something new. I made copies of the seating chart and handed one to each student as they entered the room. By the time the bell rang, they had all found their seats and class was ready to begin.
