To earn a paycheck, they need to take on classroom jobs. They can get bonuses for academic performance, outstanding behavior, or extracurricular activities. But students can also incur fines for dishonesty, disrespect, or breaking other classroom rules. And for those who can save more than their rent, the system has rewards."
I enjoyed volunteering for the Vanguard Education Advisory Council to provide input on this free K-12 experiential learning program. As I reviewed the program for the elementary grades, I saw a lot of similarities between the rewards system for character point programs and My Classroom Economy. The difference is that My Classroom Economy takes it a step further and teaches kids how to manage the money they earn.
