I need some words of advice. Next year I'm planning a baseball theme for my room and am planning to have each of my cooperative learning groups give their team a name and design their own pennant. I am toying with the idea of tying homework completion to Fun Friday time using a baseball diamond to keep track (they move to a base every day homework is turned in to earn 5 minutes of Friday time). Would it be fair to set it up as a group competition where the entire team earns time if everyone on the team turns in homework? On one hand, I feel that a little bit of peer encouragement and team competition would increase homework completion but on the other hand, I don't know if it's right to have some students losing free time because someone on their team didn't turn it in. Opinions?
