This article describes applied contingency programs for teachers that are effective in managing classroom behavior and/or improving academic behavior especially for physical education and sport environments. Many variables have been found to have positive influences on classroom behavior and good behavior increases student performance in other areas. Teacher modeling has also been found to have a positive effect on students. Teachers have also used instructions to increase positive reaction from students along with grade incentives.
