Attached are 3 documents that I used to help create my classroom jobs, grading, and incentive system.
Students applied for jobs with weekly "paychecks." The jobs are listed on the job application document. Some of the jobs include checking other students' trackers at the start of class. Becuase these jobs effect students' grades, they get a higher salary. This only left checking the student classwork grade to me, so it made grading very easy.
If students didn't have a job, they could also earn dollars in the following ways:
-having a perfect weekly tracker
-getting an 80% or higher on quizzes ($5) or 90% or higher ($10)
-teacher discretion (good citizenship, volunteering for something extra, helping a neighbor, etc).
With their money, students could buy:
•1 item from the Candy Store (price: $5)
•Preparedness Pass(if they forgot their notebook) or a pen (price: $10)
•Homework Pass (price: $15)
•Drop Lowest Quiz Grade (price: $35)
•Drop Lowest Points Sheet (price: $40)
Extra Credit on the Exam ($15 = 1%)
I also included the ppt I used to roll it out. the formatting got a little funny, and ignore the slides about the demo/seating charts etc.
I used this at the 9th grade level but think it could be tailored to any grade level.
