Student recognition is a great incentive and can be a huge motivation for the continuous progress of a student and also their good behavior. Student recognition doesn’t have to be a very big deal as little recognition works magic in the child’s morale and enthusiasm about the general schoolwork and the outlook of the school. This is contrary to bribing as they will behave poorly because they know they get away with what they want. Bribes may get a student to perform in what a parent wants them to perform at the moment, but this cannot be here the temporary solution. Rewarding is a behavioral approach that encourages the student to be helpful as no amount of complacency or complaining will and them anything.
Research has revealed that incentivizing students to read books, study various subjects, and behave well in class become building blocks to higher test scores in school. 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. However, there is no one particular right way of getting an award system in a school. 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. Removing traditional web systems that are based on grades will motivate low performing students to find their niche and try as much as possible to work with their weaknesses.
Individual awards lead to separation and can create differences between students yet a team of the award makes every student feel special as they contribute to the overall success. Academic intelligence is not the ultimate test of a good student as this may lead students to ego and stepping over others yet rewarding efforts will enable students with the character who are not high achievers to stand out and give their best average performance which is beneficial for all.
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.
