This question often comes up when I speak to other teachers. We also talk about how we can make their students pay attention during the lessons as well as how to make our lessons more dynamic and engaging.
I don’t have a magic pill, but I have been thinking about student motivation for years. I’ve done massive amounts of reading and research, and I keep trying new things. Student motivation in fascinates me.
My intention here is to be an instigator. I want to help change the way teachers look at student motivation. I see things that need to change. I know how things can change, and I care about enough about the way things in the current system are going that I want to help change the way teachers go about motivating their students.
