Motivating students is more than just a matter of elaborate reward and punishment systems, carrots and sticks. If you really want to motivate students, you have to help them choose to invest in your classroom. The resources below show you how.
In How to Motivate Reluctant Learners
While many motivational theories work well for students who are willing to at least play the game of school, they seldom address what to do about students who are completely uninterested in—or even out-and-out hostile to—classroom learning. Here’s a how-to guide that gives you the steps you need to motivate these resistant students. Rather than suggesting elaborate reward systems or a never-ending scheme of creative tricks, Robyn R. Jackson draws from Principle 1 in her best-seller Never Work Harder Than Your Students and Other Principles of Great Teaching to show you how to determine what investments you need students to make in your classroom.
