Class Grade

I often am requested to leave a letter grade to describe the overall class behavior for each period. If a "C" reflects average behavior, will the teacher think they were good or bad?
Curious how others grade their class behaviors. I want to be asked back to sub, but don't want to inflate a grade so a teacher will be happy when she returns.

I often write notes but I don't give grades based on behaviors. I usually say it's been a pleasure to be in your class today as the students were very good. If not, then I usually mention what happened. However, I've been very lucky and haven't had really any troubles. However, I often think as C's as not being very good and always aim for student's to get B's and A's.

that part of it. I take care of behavior as it happens. The are punished when it happens. If it is severe I do what I have to do, ie send to office, etc where THAT is taken care of when it happens. I leave notes for anything severe. I also leave notes on who lessons went, on if I feel something needs to have a reteach on it, and anythign else unsual. I would probably just say thank you for having me call me anytime and leave it at that. if I didn't want ot return then just say thanks and leave it at that.

I don't think a class grade says it all. It could be the class was unruly just b/c of the sub they got OR b/c of the TEACHER's classrm mgmt or many things. Everyone's definition of what they tolerate as a "c" is different.

but I agree that the narrative style is better because it is more specific. I like to know how the kids behaved and follow-up after a sub, if necessary. I think it helps future subs too because the kids know that I respect the subs in our room and expect them to as well. It is much better to read in a sub's note that something went wrong than to hear about it days later from my co-workers! Please be honest with the teachers!
