I really like this flexible seating student contract idea. The independance given to the students with this arrangement can be good for them, and this contract is a way to help them establish a mutual respect between teacher and student.
This popped up in one of my searches and was too good not to pin! The more students that have cell phones, the more i think this could come in handy. Plus it is a funny way to talk about a real issue of having phones in class.
