How to motivate students to take ownership of their learning

Learn practical strategies for making the learning really matter to kids so they’re self-motivated in the classroom.

A podcast is essentially a talk radio show that you can listen to online or download and take with you wherever you go. I release a new episode each Sunday and feature it here on the blog to help you get energized and motivated for the week ahead. We talked in the last episode about the importance of creating a reciprocal energy flow–gaining energy from kids instead of letting them drain you. Tell me if this is a familiar scene in your classroom: you ask a question, and the same 4 kids raise their hands every time. If you can relate to that scenario, there’s nothing to be embarrassed about. Dr Seuss Book Report Template - Invitation Templates.
