  1. Only three???

    Here's one of my time management practices in middle school social studies. When students' homework assignment was to answer questions from the book, I encouraged them to answer the questions in complete sentences. They checked their own answers in class -- but I skipped around, didn't ask the questions in the order they were given, and called on the students randomly for the answers. They received credit for correct verbal answers.

    What does your text say about time management?

  2. One I used while teaching chemistry was working on new lectures or reading science newsprint when I had office hours. If students came by for help I stopped BUT if no one came by, I didn't waste the hour or so of office time. A second was to use hand outs which the department secretary typed up ahead of class time. That saved time since I didn't need to write it on the board.

  3. Another good time management technique that I used helped the students and me. I handed out a syllabus at the beginning of each unit -- a practice not usually done in middle school. The syllabus was essentially a lesson plan -- it detailed the focus of each day's lesson and the assignment for each day.

  4. Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help Forum. In addition to the above, knowing the attention span of each class, I spent so many minutes on each item in the lesson plan. There was always time for questions and we did a few examples of each homework so everyone knew what to do at home. Each day had a "core" lesson that the students knew had to be done (to be ready for the extensive exams we had in May) whether I was there or not. Be sure to include enough different activities to keep everyone interested and on task. The greatest compliment from my students (as far as I'm concerned" was "I'm never bored!"
