High school English teacher and reader Nate Stearns poses three questions to Nudge blog readers:
- Would struggling students work harder if they were placed in a classroom with hard-working students?
- Would students work harder if they did all their work inside a classroom instead of relying on homework?
- Does immediate feedback affect work ethic? Do students respond differently to instant electronically graded quizzes or essays than to those that are graded by teachers, one-by-one and returned a week later?
