Don't waste time sifting through piles of worksheets - save yourself the headache and create a “master book,” a tool that organizes all your papers and keeps them all in one place. Tackle your mound of papers by sorting through each one, tossing what you don't need and keeping one copy of every important worksheet. Place them in a 3-ring binder with dividers for each month.
Goal setting made easy. Students write their goals on sticky notes that are up on the wall for all to see. When they've reached them, they can place them back in their data binders where they were recording progress, etc.
Students have to write in a log every time they do not turn in their homework on time and explain themselves. This helps teachers keep track of how many times the same student does not do his/her homework, makes students think about why they did not do their homework, and establishes accountability.
pin now, read later. A VERY WISE WOMAN once told me that if you're working extra hours as a teacher, it doesn't necessarily mean that you're a better teacher - it might mean that you don't manage your time well. i can always use new tips to WORK SMARTER, NOT HARDER, because i work many, many extra hours every week! need to work on time management.
