Hershey's Chocolate Kisses for Rewards
I give my students Hershey's chocolate kisses when they do something noteworthy (know a difficult vocabulary work, offer a correct answer when no one else will, have done the homework). It is amazing how mot ivating such a small thing can be. I also let the other students in the class suggest that a student has earner a chocolate. Be careful though, one of my students, in response to the teacher evaluation questions about what he like about the class wrote: "I like it when the teacher gives me a kiss when I do something good." Amazingly enough, this has worked with all the students I have every taught - from survival English adults to kids and businessmen.
