Last year in my class, we had several classroom jobs and rotated through the class list. Everyone had to have a job at least once (for the span of about a month). Some of the students didn't want to, and this year I've rethought the whole thing. Today my class discussed what jobs they thought were needed and came up with 8. Most of the students were very eager to volunteer for jobs, and I don't want to break down that enthusiasm when we switch who has the jobs. I want classroom jobs to be a leadership role and a privilege for the students who have them, and to somehow encourage other students to step up and volunteer. I'm wondering if anyone has ever tried some kind of payment system - not real money, obviously - or reward for students with jobs, and how it worked out. Thanks!!
