Re: Need help w kids losing music
I should've known mentioning twitter would evoke that response, but seriously, you should read what educators are saying. Yes, some is just complaining, but there are real concerns with that system. In addition, I was on the PBIS committee at my previous school. It was new to us and we went through all the process of learning about it and visiting other campuses that had implemented it. We really tried. We really wanted it to work. There was no fear of change, no complaints about how we always did things. Ultimately, the kids themselves didn't like it. The allure of a few prizes wore off really fast. Like everything else, there are aspects of it that are good. And like everything else, I am sure it works much better for some people than others (in fact, that's part of the complaint). I am glad that it works for you. I just wanted to point out what people don't like in hopes that you could avoid those pitfalls. But as you said, positivity is a good thing.
