Taking responsibility in class
What is this strategy?
When you give students jobs to do in the classroom, they feel valued, develop a sense of accountability, and contribute to the class community. (And it also makes a teacher’s job easier!) Ensure girls and boys do they same chores to avoid having students think that one job is only for girls or can only be done by boys.
When is this strategy appropriate?
Assign each student a role and change the assignments each week.
Why is this strategy important?
Giving jobs to students helps them feel valued, develop a sense of responsibility, and contribute to the classroom community.
