    I think you misunderstood my previous post. I am not against using motivators at all. In fact I recommended that she establish a behavior plan now. In my mind that would include firm standards, rewards(candy is generally very effective; especially for MD kiddos) and consequences. I do however, think it is unwise to tell the kids just for an evaluation observation "this person is coming in to watch you and if you are really good we can earn this special prize/treat/whatever". That one time special deal is very artificial and sets them and the teacher up for big failure. It also gives the kids the message that they don't have to have responsible, respectable behavior all the time.

    Anyway, hope that clears up any misunderstanding.
