The final missing piece was Post-It notes, a strategy I borrowed from Deb Verhoeven. (Thanks, Deb!) Every student starts with a green Post-It note on her laptop. That means everything’s OK. Run into a problem that they need me for? Swap it out for red. Finished? Swap it out for white.
This is a clever tip and is reminiscent of Churrascaria restaurants which often have wooden blocks or figures on the table painted red on one end and green on the other and diners flip it to indicate: stop bringing food for a while or bring more food respectively.
I've also seen another version in the now-defunct Souplantation restaurants which had laminate cards to indicate you were off at the buffet and please don't clear the table yet as you're still dining.
