Introduction to the Classroom Strategies


In this portion of the intervention, we introduce you to a variety of strategies to increase students’ task values in your classroom. These pages serve as general tips or suggestions. You can use these strategies with your entire class or with the individual student. Many of these strategies may be things you do in your class already. Some may seem to you like “just good teaching.” We ask that you read the strategies, try to incorporate at least some of them into your classroom. Then, at the end of each week, record which of these strategies you used on the strategy checklist.
