People of Integrity from the Other Side

Several years ago I wrote a post about how I prepare my students for good behavior with a guest teacher.  I had them keep a list of other students who are doing the right thing when I am not watching.

Now, I'm the guest teacher.  I have found that keeping my own list of students who are behaving well helps me.  I am focusing on the positive.  Most students want to be on the list.  The host teacher also has a positive report and can use that with whatever reward system is in place.

I also find that it forces me as a substitute to learn the names of all the students in the room--especially the quiet ones who don't demand attention.
