Timesheets, Employability Skills…All these things I wish I had either implemented at the beginning or was not as slothful in taking care of them (grades). In Summer NTI, we learned that structure and routine is something the students needs and is required and also to be proactive and not reactive. Of course, that was the purpose of completing our classroom rules and lab rules. There were a few things I did differently from the previous semester. I decided not to delve deep into lessons until about the third week of school. This was a pro considering, I was still getting new students the fifth week of school. If I could go back, I would still implement my timesheets and employability skill sheet from the beginning. There are things my students are doing that are wrecking my nerves (it may not affect other teachers), but I feel it may be unfair or come across as a punishment if I implement it now. We haven’t discussed careers yet, so I’m thinking this may be a great time to squeeze it in. I do know, next semester, I will implement from the beginning. It worked so much better when this happened. Plus, I truly believe the students appreciated the structure, enjoyed the signing in and out, and they adhered to the deductions for employability skills. Any thoughts?
