Class Store for Meeting Real-World Employer Expectations (Year Two!)
Help me give my students incentives for punctuality and on-task behavior directly linked to real-world employer expectations. Students will clock in at the start of class each day and earn a salary for meeting expectations.
I teach a college and career readiness class for a very special group of 7th and 8th graders. This is our second year of the program at our middle school, though they can continue on with it through high school where they will also receive follow-up services after graduation.
My students face barriers to post-secondary success, including financial, academic, emotional, and motivation barriers, but through project-based learning, my students learn to apply 21st century skills that will set them up for success as they transition to high school and ultimately the workforce.
Help me purchase apple and orange juice, veggie straws, chips, gum, granola bars, pens, fidgets, and lip balm for our store to help motivate students and teach them the value of hard work and attendance.
We are continuing a successful program to incentivize punctuality and on-task behavior that directly links to real-world employer expectations.
Students will clock in at the start of class each day and earn a daily salary for being present and completing projects on time. They can then use their salary to purchase things from the class store! Students will have to check their account balances with me before making purchases, and they will have to budget their money for the different incentives they want to buy.
