Give Students Classroom Jobs

Classroom jobs are a great way to build community and interdependence among students. Students develop more ownership and leadership skills in the learning environment when they feel a part of it. Responsibility can also be taught and modeled through active participation. Three tips for setting up classroom jobs include: 

  1. All classroom jobs must be meaningful and provide interactive modeling. 
  2. All students have a chance to hold the job (if not permanent).  
  3. A variety of jobs are offered, such as classroom maintenance, tasks, etc.
