Motivated Math Students at North Ridge MS

Take a look at these photos from Mrs. Brooke Sorrells’ 6th grade math classes at North Ridge Middle School.   Her students are encouraged to carefully complete a CompassLearning math lesson and pass the final quiz at the end to prove mastery in skills and earn a raffle ticket.  For every quiz a student passes with at least 70% correct, he or she receives one ticket that gets put in the drawing.   Every 3-6 weeks, Mrs. Sorrells draws 2 student names to win a $5 gift card to their place of choice.   Typically students choose a gift card for ITunes, GameStop, Starbucks, Sonic, etc.    Kudos to Mrs. Sorrells for trying new strategies to help increase the motivation level for her students.
