This classroom management technique is perfect for encouraging students to stay on task, while making their best choices! The teacher chooses a secret student for the day and writes their name on the slip, while tracking them on the tracking sheet. If the secret student has great behavior, they are revealed at the end of the day and receive a special prize or in my case- a chance to spin our class wheel! For those secret students who do not have great behavior- they simply are not revealed and do not earn the prize.

How does secret student work?
When faced with a difficult class last year and failing to turn behavior round, we introduced a system called the secret student. Each day a student would be selected secretly by the teacher at the beginning of the day, none of the students would know who it was. This student had to have a good day, work hard in lessons, good behavior, follow instructions straight away, use manners etc. and at the end of the day if the secret student had achieved this the whole class would then receive a reward. As none of the students knew if it was them all the students would try their best as the reward would benefit all of them not just the secret student. This system worked with all students wanting to try their best. If the student did not succeed their identity was not revealed thus not causing blame. However, if the student did succeed they were revealed and given praise by students. -Sarah Pauley
