Student Achievements Dashboard

It might seem like a digital achievement won’t make much difference. But believe it or not, digital achievements can transform how your students view learning and assessment. They are also a great way to support students in setting and motivating them to reach their goals. 

Dr. Robert Marzano, a leading speaker, trainer, and researcher in the field, emphasizes the importance of learning goals to help students understand β€œwhat they are learning and why.” Researchers have also found that digital achievements support students in setting goals and motivating them to reach them. Our new Achievement features can help students visualize and understand their progress in your classroom as they earn points.

Naturally, earning recognition can motivate students to perform better. Today’s students are accustomed to playing video games or mobile apps in which achievements are unlocked and digital trophies are awarded. A digital reward system makes sense to students and can be motivational and enjoyable. 

With the new digital achievements in The Juice, you can quickly and easily recognize your students’ accomplishments. Recognition can be given for skills, effort, and more. This means you can identify and reward struggling students who might normally receive little praise in the classroom. As these students gain confidence and see the results of their efforts, you’ll likely notice an improvement in engagement and abilities.

We invite you to use the new Achievements feature in your class today to help set goals, motivate behaviors, represent achievements and communicate success in its many contexts. Plus it’s tons of fun and students really love earning achievement points!  

Be sure to check out our Achievements FAQs if you have any questions.

US Politics (Grades 11-12)

Biden Executive Orders Will Reverse Trump Policies

President-elect Joe Biden plans to sign a flurry of executive orders soon after his inauguration tomorrow. He plans to address what he’s calling the four crises facing the country. They are COVID-19, the economic downturn, racial injustice, and climate change.

An executive order is a written directive from the president carrying powers similar to a federal law. Presidents have historically used these orders to push policies forward quickly because they do not require approval from Congress. The downside of executive orders is that they are easily overturned by any new president. That is not true for federal laws.

Among other moves overturning Trump administration policies, Biden’s orders will return the US to the Paris Climate Accord and to the Iran nuclear deal.

Related to the pandemic, Biden will require face masks on federal properties and during interstate travel. Other orders will be aimed at safely reopening schools and businesses.

On immigration, Biden will order agencies to determine how to reunite children separated from their families after crossing the US-Mexico border. Another order will end travel restrictions targeting majority-Muslim countries.

Other orders will address β€œequity and support communities of color,” criminal justice reform, and access to healthcare.
