Student Management

Name Sticks

Choosing students to answer questions, give reports, line up first, etc. can take a lot of time, and can often end up causing a few students to feel that your not being fair. To eliminate this problem, choose names randomly. A good method for doing this is to have students each write their name on a tongue depressor. They love to decorate them too. Put all of the sticks in a coffee can and whenever you need to choose someone, simply pick a stick randomly. There is nothing unfair about this method!
