I teach 800+ students and 40+ classes every two weeks, so I came up with this easy system to of assigning students jobs in the art classroom without going crazy. It is a Power Point documents so you could customize the jobs to fit other classes. The system is intended to be flexible so jobs can be assigned on the spot without prior planning. I also left a few blank cells so you can add your own jobs either before printing, or just write them in when you realize something new is needed.
Directions: Print in black and white, then cut out along the dashed lines, glue to fun paper, and laminate with the boxes on the left attached to the jobs on the right.
When you need a job done, use a whiteboard marker to draw the shape corresponding to the table position (last slide) inside the box on the left next to the job.
Use peel and stick laminate film to tape die cut shapes to each of the table positions as shown in the last slide. In the past I just drew them on with Sharpie marker, but that wore off in a couple of weeks depending on what we were doing.
I also print the last slide as my seating charts, place them in slicks, and write on them with Vis-a-vis markers so I can move kids around as needed without constantly having to reprint the charts.
The posters are designed at 11" by 17" also known as tabloid.
