Sticking Up for Rewards.
Chance, Paul
Phi Delta Kappan, v74 n10 p787-90 Jun 1993
Argues, in response to Kohn's article in the same "Kappan" issue, that honest feedback on student performance (informational rewards) are usually necessary for initial learning to occur successfully. Some rewards do work and have long-term benefits. The current philosophy of assigning teachers a facilitative role renders them impotent and blames students for learning failures.
