• Credit Recovery Classroom Management

    • All students use headphones for their courses.

    • Build a relationship with your students.

    • Smaller class sizes are best.

    • Constantly walk around to make sure students are on task and using the headphones.

    • Weekly conferences with students. Print out progress reports and session logs for students and chart their progress and attendance. Have the students sign and date the progress report saying that they received it and understand every piece of information on it. Give them a copy.

    • Write your room number and school phone number on the progress reports so parents can call if they have questions.

    • Student directed goal setting. Look at how many classes a student needs to complete. Help students set goals with their individual needs in mind.

    • Export your group on the dashboard to Excel every week.

    • Have the principal conference with students that are behind in progress or failing.

    • Dangling the carrot that if they complete the course successfully early, they will be switched to a "study hall".

    • In house spreadsheet maintained by guidance and admin that lists all the courses each student needs

    • Update the student’s progress in a spreadsheet (OneDrive or Google) every week. Include the course name, % complete, actual grade and start date. Share this with the administration, graduation mentors, social worker, and school counselors.

    • Celebratory phone calls home (or to whatever adult the student wants you to call) from the classroom in front of the other students.
