Independent Starters

June 06, 2013

Found In: routines & procedures, substitute teachers

Helping prepare substitute teachers to take over my class is fairly easy, because from the beginning of the school year, I have my students become “independent starters.” They each have a post-it note to mark where they last left off in both their textbook and workbook. They know if they need to get the CD player and their headset to listen to a portion of their text. My class consists of students at varying levels who read and work with different texts, so this is important. Then, as I prepare lesson plans for the substitute, I simply state that each student knows where he or she is in terms of their instruction and that the substitute must help each student as needed.
