My math prof chucks candy at students who answer questions, and all I can think is that that's exactly what Teacher!Logan does.
Logan, a high school teacher, got the idea from venting to his non-teacher roommates (aka Roman and Patton) about how he struggles to engage his students.
Roman muses, “If someone had given me candy for knowing what was going on, I definitely would have tried harder in math.”
Logan’s non-toxic modeling compound slips out of his hands and he lights up with his ‘idea’ face.
Patton knows what that face means. “Positive reinforcement will be so good for the kiddos!
Logan considers the logistics of the idea. “But the lecture hall is too big. It would disrupt the flow of the lesson to hand candy to every student that answered a question.
Roman shrugs. “So chuck it.”
Thus a new era of learning was born.
Other things about this hc (if you care to peruse the fruits of my procrastination) under the cut because it got waaay too long.
Other things about his hc:
Logan has a stash of alternative treats for people with allergies etc. They can trade with him after class.
There’s one student, Virgil, whom he’s gotten to open up because the Candy of the Day was Virgil’s favorite sometimes, which motivated him to participate. Now Logan has a supply Rolo’s specifically for Virgil
Logan couldn’t figure out why Virgil participate in class sometimes and not other times.
It took two weeks of trial and error to figure out the Rolo’s
The reason Logan was venting to Roman and Patton on that fateful day is because he’d been stressed out at work thanks to a rivalry with another teacher(three guesses who this teacher is).
Once Logan’s class is more beneficial for his students, Logan’s stress levels go down and his rival’s taunts don’t get under his skin so much.
Logan tells himself he enjoys this new candy technique because it hearkens back to Pavlov’s dog and is very scientifically sound
but actually, it’s because of the smiles on his students’ faces. And how they’ll talk over each other in an attempt to say the answer first, which sparks discussions when they disagree and sometimes Logan doesn’t even have to step in - the students will figure it out themselves.
And he makes sure that not every question is hogged by the outgoing students. He’ll specify about fifty percent of the time that he wants a raised hand. And sometimes he’ll randomly call on students too, but only on students he knows are comfortable with it.
Now his students are raising their hands not only when they have answers, but when they have questions. Usually, about how to relate in-class concepts to the real world.
One of those questions was about the probability of an AI choosing None Pizza with Left Beef from a whole menu of options, and it took up an entire period.
It threw off Logan’s lesson plan, but somehow he can’t bring himself to mind.
Virgil asked that question.
Logan splits the class into Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, and Slytherin and keeps track of which house earns the most candy. The prize at the end of the semester will be Crofter’s (unless a student has an allergy or something).
This inspires a friendly rivalry and even more participation than before.
The students all think that only one house will win the Crofter’s, but Logan is secretly planning on giving everyone a jar. The winners will get two jars.
the reason he has so much jam to give away is because Roman won a sweepstake a couple years ago. They have way too much jelly.

So. Many. Amazing. Fusions.
Everyone shouting at “Why Do We Get Out of Bed in the Morning” Before watching it like, “WE KNEW IT! WE FUCKING KNEW IT!”
Logan REALLY likes Crofter’s.
Roman angst! Roman angst!
Almost a year, and now we figure out Virgil’s new jacket has zippers?!
