I was just hired for an 8th grade position and I am thinking about having a "jobs list" for my students. It would just be maybe six jobs, that I would select random students to do each week. I noticed during my student teaching that there are lots of little things that my teachers were constantly asking students to do, like water plants, pick up the floor, shut down computers, erase the board. The students in the last class always got stuck doing everything and they complained the whole time. This is all stuff I would like my students to do, and I thought a randomly chosen job chart would be a fairer way to do this. Is this to childish for middle school? Does anyone have a system that they use that works well? Thanks!
