find new motivation"
My name is James Jennings, I teach high school science
in Detroit, Michigan. I recently incorporated the Points
method in my classroom. I have approximately 150 junior
high to senior high students ranging over five periods.
Using Points has made
a dramatic decrease in the number of discipline problems
in class and it has made my students have a better attitude
about being punctual. Points has also been a great motivator
for the children to participate in class. Children who
would normally hesitate in participating in class have
lost their fear of speaking in front of others. I can
see the Points method continuing to help the instruction
process in my classroom for years to come.
