    Before each lesson I pick a Mystery Student to watch for. They don’t know who I am “watching” out for. Sometimes during a lesson I say, "Wow! I wonder if my Mystery Student is totally on task!" All of a sudden, I have 15 pairs of eyes on me. If the Mystery Student follows the “rules” they receive a reward of some kind. If the Mystery Student does not follow the rules - a brief, vague discussion is had with the whole group about what we should be working on to earn "Mystery Student". Fun and easy
