My Kids Are World (History) Champions

My students need more motivation. I have many students who enjoy WWE and would love to be able to wear the belt for their achievement, whether for a day or an entire week.

My Students

I teach World History at a predominantly Native American school in a low income area. It can be difficult getting them to stay engaged as education isn't necessarily pushed in all homes. Although I am in high school teaching, I have some kids that read well below grade level and am always looking for ways to improve that area.

My students have grown together in small community schools that have created a very strong bond over where they live and their shared Native heritage.

Just like in any other close group of people, they love competing with each other. A lot of them have known each other their entire lives and I am blessed that I've been able to come in as a first year teacher and immediately connect with them.

My Project

I have numerous students throughout all my classes that enjoy WWE. Even the ones who do not watch it love being rewarded for their hard work, growth, and achievement. I want this belt as a way to reward students for when they do well. So often they are told what they did wrong and when they do well are not sufficiently praised for that.

This championship belt would be awarded to someone different either weekly or daily based on different criteria like who improved their grade the most the previous week or who has been to school the most consecutive days.

It would take a significant achievement to be able to wear the belt. It would be a huge deal to the students to be awarded the belt for whatever length of time their accomplishment warranted. It is my thinking that my kids will improve their work ethic knowing they can be the champion for at least a day!
