Sometimes doing the right thing simply because it is the right thing is not motivating enough for some individuals.
Here is what the first entry for this week's unit on resumes says in the gradebook.
Even High School students need resumes! The final product after this week of investigating will be every student having their own resume. Today students will learn about some of the things that are included on resumes for people with not much work experience. Students will be encouraged to take notes while we watch 2 short videos and discuss some of the things about resumes that they will benefit from learning. Grade today will be based upon engagement in discussion and positive and productive contributions to the class.
Should be an easy a, right?
Things that have a negative effect on that grade.

MAKING negative CONTRIBUTIONS TO THE DISCUSSION
not making positive contributions to the discussion
Being unpleasant and disruptive in class negatively affects your education and the education of other students in the classroom.
