I teach high school students & their ages can range from 14 yrs.old as Freshman to 20 year old Seniors. I get really frustrated sometimes when some students come to class w/out any of their materials, i.e., pens, paper, notebook, textbook, etc. Some of my colleagues tell me I should just "supply" them w/that stuff & they say they do. They tell me I should be glad that "they are there." I have a problem with that. Should I also supply them w/toothpaste, deoderant, paper, folders, socks,etc.? These are high school students! I guess I can continue to call parents if they even live at home. What about giving them detention? Not sure. My rules were clearly explained & given to them since day one by the way. Would love to hear any suggestions that are positive and could work for me. Thanks!
