Survivor: The Classroom??

Survivor has been to tropical spots all over the world.  One can buy The Zombie Survival Guide, and one can buy Modern Survival Magazine or Backwoods Home Magazine which offers an Emergency Preparedness Guide.  Today Lifehacker published its "Top 10 Tips for Surviving Office Life."

The government does publish a survival guide for new teachers, but it's from the government, and after NCLB, I'm not sure if teachers who actually have survived the classroom helped write it.  I know no one listened to actual teachers when legislators wrote and the executive branch implemented the law.

All of this got me to wondering, what does it take to survive in the classroom?  What are the top ten tools or tricks or  methods that allow teachers to stay on the island?  Comment at your leisure.  Comment early and often.  Forward, link, whatever you desire.  If I get enough comments, I'll collate them and post the best of the best survival tips or tools.
