THANK YOU. Middle school and even high school appropriate classroom management ideas that are practical, useful, and boost economy of effort for teachers and students. Oh, joy, finally a resource that calls my name! So many excellent ideas for a professional, mature yet functioning, fun, and learning-filled classroom!
Secret Service Agents: give each child a manilla envelope with suggestions of "undercover assignments"-- ways to secretly serve others. This would be a great end-of-the-year activity that the kids could have fun with over the summer.
