Rewards and Incentives



Fourteen teachers from across the UK talk about their approach to rewarding and praising students, as well as the potential problems and pitfalls involved.

The teachers discuss the different ways they reward students from trips to vouchers or postcards sent home to parents. The key is consistency, but what exactly does this mean and how do you make your students understand?

They also talk about how the key to a successful reward is the praise that accompanies it, and whether there are rewards that just don't work for some students.

They also discuss how reward systems can go wrong, and offer ideas and tips to help get the best from your students.

This programme is part of a series where secondary teachers share their tried and tested strategies for success in the classroom, from group work to creativity and time management.
