Differentiating Reinforcement to Decrease Assistance during Guided Watching

Through the embedded evidence-based practices in the Digitability curriculum, teachers support student needs in many ways. As students increase their expressive/receptive language abilities and their capacity to attend to and recall information, student prompting and assistance can be decreased. For example, teachers may no longer need to distribute tactile reinforcers like the printed dollars, but instead, only use the phrase, “Nice job earning a participation dollar...” while marking the earnings into their Teacher Dollar Tracker.
