Talk:Implementing a Token Economy in the Classroom


Developmental Try-Out -- Aaron Langenauer (talk) 14:39, 1 May 2015 (EDT)


Great project! I love the idea of a Token Economy, and when all is said and done I think I'll go through this entire mini-course. As a young teacher, I struggle with classroom management. I plan on rewriting my curriculum over the summer and I think I'll look into ways to incorporate a token economy - because of your course.

I'm flipping back and forth between the evaluation criteria and your mini-course. Overall I think it looks excellent. Your outcomes are clearly written and you include all the major aspects of instructional design. One thing I would suggest is to put the learner outcomes on the course's introduction page, as well as on the portfolio page - just for a little continuity.

I went through your first lesson, and it makes sense, is easy to follow, and interesting. One thing, though - Where do the learners respond to your questions at the end of the lesson? On the discussion page? Another forum of some kind? And there's no mention of the Learning Journal until you give an assignment for it at the end of the lesson. Is this a public forum? Private "diary" type of thing? These instructions need to be clearer.

Overall, though, I love it. In fact, I think I'm going to model your layouts in my own course as I go back and finish, edit, and brush it up. And I'm looking forward to going through yours after we all finish!
