Tricks and other thoughts l.jpg

Tricks and Other Thoughts

  • No surprises for teachers or students. If it is news, good or bad, the people involved need to hear it from you.

  • You set the periods, or the department does. What ever the process, keep it same all year.

  • Make up a class called “unscheduled” for students who hve less than a full schedule

  • Make up a class called “not returning” for students who tell you they are leaving next year.


Tricks and other thoughts21 l.jpg

Tricks and Other Thoughts

  • Use a block for multiple periods and split it as late as possible.

  • Create a class for “college class” for those students who will be off campus.

  • Don’t sugar coat. Honesty has value.

  • There is always an unexpected change.

  • The schedule and the rooms belong to the students, not to the teachers.
