Incentives for Middle School and High School Students is a great behavioral management system. Students are able to earn reward incentives through their kinds deeds, actions, and performance in class. This is great for those students who need a little incentive to get busy on an assignment or who need a little praise for effort. These are great for students in grades 6-12! My students love them!
