A job-based model of Classroom Management

A trio of typical jobs in a Korean class might include, Class Captain, Multimedia specialist and Lunch Servers. Imagine adding Bankers, Organizers, Graders and Attendance Takers to the mix. This workshop is applicable for teachers of elementary to college age students. Through discussion, a question and answer session, and handouts, attendees will learn about this extensive classroom management model which builds student autonomy and responsibility as students assume part ownership of the class.Students are encouraged and expected to maintain and submit attendance records, class records, and grade short quizzes. In return, they earn ‘classroom money’ which can be used to purchase benefits such as good seats, and other small items. The teacher is the facilitator of the system, whichsaves time, resources and builds a culture of motivation in the classroom.
