Quiet Monitors?
Old 10-23-2017, 07:21 PM
Clip to ScrapBook #1

I have a sensory issue where it's impossible to determine which student is talking. As a result, there is no way to apply consequences for talking other than barking at the whole class. It was suggested that I use student monitors to help with my 3rd grade class.

This didn't work last year because:
不tudents lost instructional time managing the classroom for me
不tudents abused their power by falsely accusing rivals and letting their friends get away with talking
品t required a lot of extra time in the classroom as I looked at their charts and slid students up and down the clip chart.
不tudents in the back can't see mouths moving, and students in the front have face backwards to do their job.

However, a further suggestion was that the program could would if:
不tudents were not out to "catch" offenders
不tudents were rewarded if they had a quiet area and didn't have problems.

any idea how to do this?
