Rewards and punishments are commonly seen as classroom strategies that manage inappropriate behaviors in our schools. The intended goal is to change the behavior of students, yet in many cases the change may only be for a moment. This presentation offers research studies that support the idea that the use of rewards and punishments may not be the most successful strategies in attempting to change the behavior of students. This presentation also provides alternative management styles that can be used to encourage behavior that enhances learning and reinforces internal motivation. The findings will benefit current and future educators alike.
