The Red Card
Here in Korea, soccer (football) is big. I have combined the yellow card/red card
penalty system in soccer with the three strikes and you're out from baseball. At the end of
every two months, we have a pizza party. They love their pizza / bingo parties. So, during those eight weeks I will "yellow card"
a disruptive student. I even have several actual yellow and red cards to set on the table as a warning. A second yellow card for the second disruption and a Red card for the third.
At the end of the two month period, if the students have not accumulated three red cards then they get their
pizza party. This system generates it's own police force. The students will police each other, reminding
the disruptive ones that their behavior will cancel the pizza.
