My grade (at least at my school) doesn't use the textbook. Instead, they use the Workbooks. In talking with the other 7th grade SS teachers, they've kind of given me 2 ideas on what to do with the workbooks. Which one do you guys think is the better option? 1. Tear out a unit from the workbook at a time, staple it, and give it to the student, keeping their workbook in class. This way, if they lose the papers, they haven't lost the workbook they'll need for the entire year. It's a bit more work on my part, as far as tearing out 120+ workbooks each unit...but... 2. Students keep their workbooks in a class crate at the front of the room. When they come into class, they get their workbook and use it that day. If they lose it, though, it's gone...unless they can like pay for a new one, I'm not sure how that works. What would you do? Or would you just give them the workbook and tell them tough bananas if they lose it? Advice welcome and thanks in advance!
