Extra tip: The Referee Cards

Original idea from Frau Stiehl, Kassel

Frau Stiehl's idea is specially suited to the football fans in the classroom.

Description:

A disturbance in the lesson can be treated relatively easily with the yellow card. This is a definite indication that the next time the yellow card is shown, consequential action concerning the disturbance will be taken. The consequences should be agreed upon in the forefront with the pupils.

Recommendation:

If a third disturbance occurs, the red card should be shown. The consequences must be more serious than the ones before. According to Mrs. Stiehl, these cards are particularly effective during the football season. However, they are suitable for the individual case but should not be used for collective punishment. Print the signs and have them laminated at the copy shop. On the back of the sign, the name of the warned pupil can be noted with a water-soluble pen and then wiped off later.
