Candy Check Chart
My teen class was using too much L1, to each other, so...after observing this at an elementary school, I tried it: Laminate a posterboard. Build a chart with 10 checks by each student name. When a student speaks in L1, when they could have used the target language, English, erase a check. (Use wet erase markers for the checks.) Set a resonable number of checks, such as 6 left the first week, 8 left the third week, etc. and give candy or another prize at the end of the week, to those students with that number of checks left on the chart. This worked for my high school students!
