Take Home Detention: Instead of punishing yourself by having to stay late for detention give your students a take-home detention. They have to re-write the paragraph and have their parent sign it by the next class day. I attached a lined sheet of paper/notebook paper. If they fail to turn it in the next day they receive either a parent contact or office referral.
Unfortunately, detention is a fact of academic life. These detention slips let students know where and when to report to detention, and let the supervisor know why they are there. Free to download and print
