Question Before You Read: In the last lesson, you identified two "tokens" you might use. In your learning journal, describe these in detail, draw a picture, explain them. Now, connect them to two behaviors that you want to improve in your classroom- For example: "I will use "Scholar Dollars" or "Kaufman Cash" that is paper money with my picture in the middle. I will distribute the cash to students who complete their homework. Students will receive five dollars for each week they complete all five assignments."

Questions:
1. Take a look at your tokens. What do you need to do to implement them (make copies, purchase, sign up for an account etc) How long will it take to gather them for your class?
2. Take a look at your backup reinforcers. What do you need to implement them? How long will it take you to gather them for your class?

Questions:
1. Do you think that this website could help you construct your plan? Why/Why not?


Learning Journal: In your learning journal complete the "Getting Ready" section after the article. Also write responses to the four questions asked in the lesson and the assignment. In the next lesson you will be publishing the actual plan for your economy and reflecting on its implementation. Start small. Remember- this economy can grow. Begin with two behaviors, one or two tokens, and two reinforcers. Narrow them down for your plan.
