Class roster by period on a lanyard; easy attendance in case of emergencies.

Choose a desired behavior and write it on the board. Select a stick, but don't reveal the name to the class. Throughout the lesson, periodically monitor the named student for the desired behavior. If he achieves the goal behavior, reveal his identity and reward him with a special classroom incentive. If the named student doesn't demonstrate the behavior, do not name the student, tell the class that there was not a winner this time. Choose another mystery student and repeat the process.
