Class Competitions at LPS Richmond

Sophia Thomas, teacher, explains how class competitions are used to motivate students.


Transcript: Sophia Thomas: I can set competitions for however long I choose. I started out with two week competitions. Then I switched to three week competitions. On a daily basis to earn points for your team, whenever you complete an assignment, on your dashboard you have to indicate complete. You have to put the score in, whatever score you're self-reporting. This is how much I got. You've got to put that in. You've also got to select the date. Every time you do that in one day you add a point to your team. That extends to homework too.
