This was designed for teachers, but I think it would work great at home, too. Instead of fighting over homework completion, make it a literal game with this customizable Monopoly board. If your homework gets completed, you get to play. It works well if you share with your kids your own “homework” and let them see you track the things you need to do. teachnet.com/...

Cool Bulletin Board idea to "spotlight" a student or famous person. I would do both. Maybe every week a different actor, playwright, designer, etc to research to extra credit or a weekly report, and every now and then a student, to make them feel special having been up on the same wall as a big name.
