In School-wide Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) , many schools are seeking ways to reward students in ways that give recognition and attention from peers and adults without costing much money. These pages have been compiled from working with Pre-K through High Schools on successful rewards used as incentives for students and staff. Individual teachers can use these rewards in their classrooms or they can be part of a universal effort for PBIS. Ask students to share their ideas with you about “What would mean the world to you? What could an adult give you that would let you know you had done a good job; but, it can’t cost much money?” I was once riding a school bus in a very large metropolitan city, prior to providing PBIS training to the bus drivers. While we were running the route, the bus assistant came up to me and pointed to two boys directly behind me and said, “He’s the first worst kid on the bus and that one over there is the second worst kid on the bus.” After I thought the students had time to calm down from her negative comments, I turned around and asked these middle school students the “what would mean the world to you” question. Here are there answers: 1) “Oh man. I see people when they throw a football it goes straight. When I throw a football it goes all crazy. If someone could teach me how to throw a football straight; that would mean the world to me.” 2) “I suck at spelling (pardon the language). If someone could tell me how to be a better speller. That would mean the world to me.” I am continually amazed at the answers students give me to this question. I read somewhere that we have decreased face time with children by 62% since the 1950’s. It seems that one of the best rewards we can give them is our time. ©2011 Laura Riffel-Behavior Doctor Seminars-Permission to Copy-

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
