Classroom Management: Restroom Strategy for Secondary Students

Hi everyone! After my first year of teaching, I reflected on the things that went well and all the things that needed to change in order to help me survive in the wonderful, yet challenging, life of being a teacher.  

One of the things that I felt I could change and manage was how I allowed students to leave my classroom.  In the video, I share my hall ticket strategy that helps me control the number of students that leave my classroom during a grading cycle.

I failed to mention two things in the video. The first is that I do not allow students to loan passes to their peers.  The second thing is that I provide opportunities for students to earn additional tickets. Students may earn these through peer assistance (i.e., not just telling answers but actually tutoring), consistent on-task behavior, or during in-class assessment reviews.

Remember: Be consistent.  

Free, editable templates are provided if you're interested in trying this strategy now or in the future. Feel free to comment on this post or in the video comment section on YouTube if you have a question or a comment and I'll do my best to get back to you!
