Teachers hate being out of their classes. Subs hate to face unruly classes. Students do not always understand why they get into trouble with a guest teacher, and yet, teachers always say, "be good." So what IS it to "be good"? The answer is finally here: a Guest Teacher Rubric (to be made into an 8 1\2 by 11 - or larger - poster) and "after action" reports for both the student and the guest teacher. This file also contains a (fully customizable) letter to students FOR THEIR BINDERS that lets them know why discipline is different when a guest teacher is there, how it is good to have objective opinions of their behavior, and what they can do about not only addressing "unfair" sub behavior but how they can improve their communication skills to be prepared for the work world's "unfair" decisions. This PowerPoint file is helpful for teachers before, during, and after their absences and for guest teachers to leave behind for the teacher of record. In fact, if a substitute starts a class by briefly outlining this system, it acts as a proactive approach to disciplinary problems. The file is 7 pages (which includes student sample and substitute samples of the After Action Reports).
