Grades 11–12

First Day

On the first day of the program, you briefly explain the rules and expectations of the classroom economy as you would with any classroom management system. You then give the students a syllabus they can take home and read as homework.

Preparation

60-90 minutes

  • Familiarize yourself with the syllabus and customize as needed for your classroom.
  • Create student folders to be handed out at the start of class. (Items to include are listed in Preparing Materials.)
  • Create any customized visual displays of your jobs, bonuses, and fines lists that you desire (posters, bulletin boards, etc.). Or plan how students can create these.

In class

10 minutes

Welcome the students and inform them that they'll be earning and spending money throughout the year. Let them know that they will each be paid, in classroom dollars, for holding the job of "exemplary student" and that they can apply for additional jobs to make even more money.

Hand out the folders you created and ask the students to take out the My Classroom Economy Syllabus. Assign them a due date (potentially within the next few days) for reading Part One of the syllabus.

Tip:

If you like to include your students in creating class rules and policies, feel free to let them suggest additional bonus opportunities, fines, and auction items.

If you have enough time, you can combine the first and second days into one.
