“Substitute Teacher Homepage” is a great resource for the poor folks who regularly find themselves in charge of strange classrooms full of rowdy kids. It’s a forum where “teachers on call” can read others’ suggestions for dealing with an array of situations, from inaccurate seating charts to constant requests for bathroom passes. There are tips for filling time constructively when lesson plans aren’t provided, a comparison of wages over several school districts, and stories of real classroom experiences. There’s also a section where teachers and subs can exchange advice to make each others’ jobs easier.
