Reflection: Intrinsic Motivation Gingerbread Goes West--a Look at Setting - Section 3: Assessment


I usually do not pass out rewards for expected work, but I do want my students to know that I value their hard word and I think this type of reward sparks conversations and strengthens the understanding of the story.  The belt buckles become part of the work and their perception of being an award is a guise.  Everyone will earn a buckle, because that is what I want to happen so that children of all ability levels will be asked about their belts and about the story that has been read.  I will assure this happens because I visit with each of the students who need more of a push to get things done, and I can send them to work with our paraprofessional who will insure that the goal is met.
