An effective work system should answer these 3 basic questions:
My students all have their "work schedules" posted on the wall. When they enter the work station, they grab their work schedules and their reinforcer. They place the reinforcer on their work schedule so they have a reminder of what they are working for.
These work schedules correspond to icons on the drawers. The drawers are filled with tasks. The students complete the tasks and place them in an all done bin on the right side of the desk.
