Positive Reinforcement Ideas for Subs in Middle/High school? Hey Everyone! I've gotten such good advice here in the past, so I figured I would shoot this question out and see if anyone had any ideas. I'm slowly stepping my foot into the substitute teaching door. I'm playing around with some classroom management ideas, consequences for negative behaviors, but what I don't really have are ideas for positive reinforcement in the middle or high school classroom. I was thinking I could rewards students with: -writing a personal and positive note to the teacher about particular students that were behaving. -for younger classes hand out stickers (but I've had stickers denied by boys that were "too cool" to get them) - specific, positive feedback. Any other ideas for how I can reward a student or a class with something positive?
