Many elementary and secondary educators incorporate rewards and incentives into their teaching strategies to recognize student achievement in tasks big and small—appropriate and cooperative behavior, academic milestones, homework completion, random acts of kindness.
When awarded fairly and judiciously, they’re a hit with students, and many teachers report increased motivation in their pupils. A 7-year-old Florida second grader says she feels “excited and happy” when she earns recognition, and it spurs her to work harder. “And then I usually try, try to do better in school, because school’s important,” she says.
