Sax, Richard; Kohn, Alfie
Learning, v24 n5 p6-7 Mar-Apr 1996

The first suggests that such programs benefit students by building self-esteem, with students earning while they learn. The second states that rewards may lower comprehension and dull long-term interest in reading, with children focusing on rewards rather than learning. (SM)
