I created a class in class dojo for all of my writing students. When they completed a part of the writing process they came up and gave themselves a point. This point let me know which step they were on in the process and what day they completed that step. It has been a huge success for me and my monitoring and the students love seeing their points increase with each step. I do not have rewards attached to this specific class, but that could also be an option for extra motivation.
What is your best idea of the day...please share?
