I am taking a para professional position in a special education class. I noticed during my observation of the student-teacher interaction that the teacher likes to reward the behavior struggling students with "points" for good behavior. She has charts for each student on her wall that she constantly has to walk across the room to get to to award points. Class Dojo seems like a wonderful alternative for my class and would motivate the students even more! Once students improve motivation for external reasons, students can begin working on motivation for internal reasons.
