• In my classroom, I use a classroom economy in which students are assigned jobs, receive paychecks, pay rent, save their money, can earn bonuses for academic achievement and positive behavior, students can also be fined when not meeting expected behaviors. Please see below for classroom expectations, positive feedback and corrective actions.
