Try P.R.A.I.S.E. - Positive Reinforcement And Individualized Systematic Economics.
Wollam, Scott
Described is a multi-faceted money system which utilizes positive and negative reinforcement while at the same time incorporating peer pressure and reinforcement for behavior modification. The system uses such items as money, checks, deposit slips, and bank books. Children have jobs such as pencil sellers, banker, or door monitor, and receive pay checks. The children can spend their money on things such as popcorn, free time, or a bowling trip with the teacher. This system is good for handling behavior problems, teaching economics, and motivating students with low ability. Money is raised to purchase the prizes by a yearly paper drive. (BB)
