I am out at least once a month for half a day for our building leadership team meeting. It seems that my class cannot handle having a substitute, AT ALL. My class is very social, and for the most part, are not disrespectful. They just talk. A lot. Sometimes it is very difficult to have them come in, sit down and be quiet. I can imagine it is 10x worse when a sub is in the room. I just don't know what to do to encourage them to have better behavior and respect a substitute. It's not even a majority of the class, it's probably only 5 or so students. I always leave my discipline plan and rewards, individual and class. I used to be a sub, so I know how difficult it is, but many subs don't have a background in education and don't understand the students. I am at a loss on how to encourage my class to do better. Any ideas?
