Before, I get into my latest incentive program, I want to report that the "everyone in your seats" thing went better than expected today. The only ones who were tardy, would have been tardy anyway because they walked in the door after the bell rang. I did hear one "This is so stupid!" but I ignored it. I'm getting really good at that. I also collected two cell phones, for a total of five in two days.
As usual, they grumbled when I suggested it and are completely on board now that it has gotten started. I had a cohort from my licensure classes snootily post on the message board that she expects her students to learn because they want to, not because she's bribing them. That's one of those things that is great in theory, but has little basis in reality for the majority of the population (especially the population I work with).
By the way, I made today's picture here!
