I have seen, first-hand, this program in action. The retailer, Target, has been using this program with its employees for years. The program creates a positive work environment, as well as a sense of satisfaction that your positive efforts do not go unnoticed. This translates perfectly into the school system. The G.R.E.A.T. Student Card program will help create a positive classroom and/or school environment. The students will develop more of an awareness of self and how it impacts others and themselves. They will want to do the right thing. This program will also impact your students by helping them to understand economics as well. The students have to save for the things that they want. If a student wants to spend their cards right away, they will only be able to purchase small, “cheap” items. If they want something bigger, (i.e. gift cards [that have been donated by local businesses], games, logo wear, etc.) they will have to save for it.
