Put student's names on the back of YOUR nametag so that you won't have to worry about finding the list during something like a firedrill. Most brilliant idea ever. (or spelling words on the back of a student tag)
Log for students that did not do homework (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.
