Motivating students to engage fully with their schoolwork is a perennial challenge for educators. What’s more, many time-honored motivational tactics, such as offering incentives or rewards for specific outcomes, tend to produce only short-term effects-and sometimes backfire completely. This webinar provides teaching strategies to sustain students’ levels of interest and effort.
Our expert guests-teacher and author Larry Ferlazzo and principal Chris Wejr-will provide background and actionable strategies for creating conditions in classrooms and schools that inspire students to take greater ownership of their learning and futures. Among the topics they will address are relationship-building, collaborative learning, praise strategies, opportunity-based instruction, and meaningful communication of expectations. They’ll also respond to viewers’ questions on specific challenges and problem-areas concerning motivation. Registrants will also receive an exclusive discount offer for Ferlazzo’s newest book: Self-Driven Learning: Teaching Strategies for Student Motivation.
