Rsearch has shown that giving students positive reinforcement in the form of verbal praise can be a powerful motivator for students. I decided to create a way in which you can guarantee that you are giving each student in your class some sincere, honese, substantial verbal praise. This positive reinforcement can be done in front of other students, or privately. You know which method of delivery is best for the student. This was created as a tool for classroom teachers to use. You do not have to let anyone know that you are keeping track of how many times you are giving students praise. Pring and place it on a clipboard; and, you are ready to go!!!
