Here’s one strategy I use for motivating my students to turn in their homework on time:
Students Who Need to KETCHUP!
Here’s the idea:
Put this sign on your whiteboard or on a poster board displayed in a prominent spot in your classroom. When students don’t turn in their homework, they get put on the Ketchup List, or a list of students who need to catch up (“ketch-up” – get it?!?).
When their work is turned it, they may erase their name.
I put the small ketchup bottle on their desk – I bought it at the Dollar Tree –
to remind me that they owe me work.
