I use incentive for all ages. I found that even high schoolers enjoy
recieving a Jolly Rancher for complete assignments. I saw one teacher that
would have a donut hole party every Friday those turning in the weeks worth
of work. Incentives start a working realtionship with some students that
would not exist otherwise. they are used to moset people just getting in
their face. A balance needs to be reached. Susan in Ohio
