Teaching Tips – Coupon Reward System
One of the things I really wanted to do this year was to create more teaching related content on our blog and youtube channel. In the beginning of the year I did a 5 part series about How to Make Your EPIK Job Awesome, which I hope you check out if you haven’t already! Since then I’ve done a few other teaching tips and videos about my summer camp. A lot of you have requested materials from my camp, so I am going to be working hard to start sharing materials with you all, starting with this post!
I have gotten several comments and questions about how I reward and motivate my students in class. First of all, I will ask you to remember that my videos are edited, and I’m only using clips of my students on their best behavior! Mostly because I’m not filming unless they’re under control, for obvious reasons.
When I first came to my school there were no reward systems in place. My Korean counterparts did have a sticker system but it seemed to not apply to classes with me. So I decided to create a coupon reward system for the classes that I led! I chose this system because it’s effective and easy to customize for your students. You can change the pictures to match the characters your students are interested in, or make special ones for certain holidays.
The video explains the rest but if you have any questions, leave a comment! If you want to download the coupons I showed in the video, you can print them here – coupon
Let me know if use the coupons and how it works for your class! Or if you use another system, let me know about it in the comments! Also let me know what other teaching-related content you’d like to see from us.
