I’ve been out of town all weekend at my sorority conference (and I had a blast!), but I can’t NOT link up to Joanne’s linky party.
With middle school students it is ALL about extrinsic motivation. So often, I hear teachers say, “I shouldn’t HAVE to reward them to learn”….blah, blah, blah. I laugh and say, “You wouldn’t work without pay would you?”
As an incentive to do well on assessments, I provide students with various passes (Homework, Bonus Points, and Missed Assignment).
Students can earn these passes by making A’s or B’s on assessments or meeting their MAP goals. I also hand them out when only a few students remember a particular situation, skill, or concept that is a review.
These passes are FREE in my Teacher’s Notebook Store. Click on the link here to find them.
Until the next time!
