Today I'm going to show you how to have an easy to update progress indicator chart on your web page to keep track of points or stars or whatever incentives you use to keep your students happy and engaged.
In my mythology class, we complete old Medusa Exams and every question correct is a slain gorgon my hero students can claim victory over.
Now that I am in Remote Learning mode, I am using it in my English IV classes to give points whenever someone participates in our Remote Learning Showdown. I am giving them the ability to spend those points to get things (bonus points on a quiz, homework pass, etc.).
Now, I did NOT figure out how to do this myself. I found this on Flippity.net. You can get the template here: https://www.flippity.net/ProgressIndicator.htm
The instructions for how to put it on your class page are all there. You can post the chart on your class page and you update it just by accessing a simple Google Spreadsheet. Change the numbers and the web version automatically updates. That's simple! Whoever made this chart rates as Extreme! in my book!
If you have some other way of keeping kids engaged, or if you use this/plan to use this - let me know in the comments!
