I started subbing this year and have received mostly one day assignments. In Feb. I'm scheduled for a four day assignment. I've taken the time to observe the class I'll be subbing. One thing that I have noticed is that many teachers (this one included) will ask the class a question and generally the same small group of students raise their hands to answer. I was thinking about putting the students names on Popsicle sticks and using those instead so everyone gets the opportunity to answer rather than the "eager beavers". However, this is a change in the teachers procedure. I'm not sure if this is a good idea or not. Does anyone have any advice? This also leads to another question. It has been implied that this will be the same teacher I will do my student teaching under. When you student teach do you follow the CTs class procedures and rules or can you create new ones? It seems this may be confusing for the students but how else do you practice for your future class?
