Classroom Management: "Star System Management"

Debra Young-Allen from OK has provided us all with an interesting classroom management technique.  Her “Star System Management” is appropriate for elementary and middle school students, and can be an effective means of management for substitutes, though the reward may need to be modified.  The Star System divides the class in half, rewards each side stars for good behavior, and also rewards the opposing team when students on the other side are misbehaving.  Peer pressure, ftw?
