Teaching vs. Texting. That's what your job seems like most days, doesn't it?
Here's Poster #363 to the rescue. It's a tell-it-like-it-is, attention-grabbing reminder sign that explicitly informs students 24/7 that texting is not allowed in your classroom.
Let students know that you know that no one stares at their lap for long periods of time while sitting through class. Let them know that you are aware that they are "sneak texting" and that you won't tolerate it any longer. If verbal warnings and reminders are not enough, then Poster #363 is going to be the new, more powerful tool you need.
Your students may refer to it as the "lap poster." Call it what you want, but Poster #363 is going to generate a lot of conversation and draw a lot of attention. That type of notice is going to get your "no texting" message out and keep students well aware of your cell phone policy.
Get back to teaching and quit your job as the texting cop. You signed up for much more important work than fighting about cell phone usage. Start to love your job again once you can teach more and hassle less about cell phones and texting.
Get Poster #363 posted on your walls today and put its excuse-stopping, authoritative message over your students' heads today and then watch for decreased cell phone use and less texting tomorrow.
