I designed this poster to go along with my cooperative learning team progress tracker. The way I use it is to assign every student a number (that way only the student knows which grade is his or her's) and record their weekly progress grades on the poster. At the end of each 4-week period, their grades can be averaged and recorded. The students always like to see their progress and compare it to other students' progress. Also, at the bottom of the poster the on-going class average can be recorded. I reward students based on their individual grade averages as well as the entire class if they achieve a certain average by the end of the 4-week period. You can set whatever level of achievement you want to. The key to using this poster is to have it made into a large poster that's laminated and posted on the classroom wall.
