Students Share Their Top Motivation Killers
All good teachers care deeply about the students that enter their classroom. Among those students are some who are difficult to motivate. However, instead of simply wondering what we can do differently as teachers, Chase Mielke, author of What Students Really Need to Hear and writer for We Are Teachers, actually sat down with a group of sophomore students who ranked in the bottom three percent of their academic class.
Check out the six things those students listed as their top motivation killers:
1. Bombing a Big Test
2. No Opportunities to Revise
3. Too Much Lecturing
4. Poor Understanding
5. Boring Content
6. Lack of Respect for Kids
