Structure is key

Our program is a bit structured... the helpers don't just show up.
Thank you! MaineSub brings up a very good point. Kids (including teens) need structure. I've also taught 1st and 2nd grade classes where an older class comes in to do buddy reading . As long as they're supervised, it works great.

But sending a teen to help out in a younger class without any specific tasks outlined for the teen just doesn't work. It can be a real headache for a sub If the teen resists direction
