To order my students for our conflict topics poster show I assigned each student a playing card. The students are not to look at their card, but to tape it to their forehead. They are to treat others according to their “face value.” A “2” would be ignored or picked on while a “Queen” would be complimented. Obviously it’s a good idea to give higher cards to your students who need some cheering up and lower cards to students with a good sense of humor.
It’s too bad to see how fast students get each other in line!
Then, when students are signing up for topics, I go from lowest card to highest.I hope what you've read is useful!
