A Problem Tackled

Students earn monthly academic and incentive based trips at Benway. Recently, Benway tackled an issue with students’ motivation by decreasing the point average needed to earn the field trips by just 3 points. Benway found that the slight change made students feel like the trips were more attainable and thus were able to turn student behavior around with this flexible approach. Giving compassion to students resulted in students showing compassion back in their efforts.
