Student recognition is a great incentive and can be a huge motivation for the continuous progress of a student and also their good behavior. Small recognition gestures mean a lot of students especially from the parent’s part. Coming up with a system of rewards encourages students to take positive actions in the direction that will benefit them in the long run. They words are there, on the other hand, will draw effort from the student and having the patient’s that effort can be a lesson itself. Rewarding is a behavioral approach that encourages the student to be helpful as no amount of complacency or complaining will and them anything.
Bribes on the other end, leave the controller the student as they are able to be crafty about the times they behave well to get what they want. It is proven that children have the capacity to be lifelong just by being provided with an engaging curriculum which has a safe and caring community in which they are able to discover and create and also factor in a degree of choice about what their learning. Teachers who only award high achievers and leave the rest might end up losing their motivation as they should be a well-balanced awarding system that recognizes even the little effort of other students as well. This is because there is no perfect grading system as a student will be 1% of the reward category will not qualify for the reward, and this disqualification doesn’t make sense. This will make the teachers let the children know that they are seeing the good things that are in them instead of waiting for them to perform well in grades in order to reward them. Treating high achievers as kings and queens only make the low performing students to the comfortable the performance as they slowly believe that is nothing special in them.
Inasmuch as it is important to recognize students work that have done well in school, it is important to recognize efforts that can generalize all the students without making one of them feel overly special. This ultimately enable students from different backgrounds to feel accommodated in working the best way possible.
It is expedient for schools to choose the rewarding system that will encourage character and not just academic performance. A reward doesn’t have to be institutional to be effective in a child’s performance as it can be enhanced by the environment created around the student where they feel appreciated for the little things they do. Such societies have the proper regalia to make child’s special day like graduation look beautiful even if they didn’t perform well.
