“How do I motivate my students now?”
is a question that has taken on new meaning in the context of school closure.
Classroom comradery, grades, a quick one-on-one meeting out in the hall, publication celebrations, hands-on projects, honor roll assemblies--whatever methods we have typically used to motivate students--are no longer available to us. Or, not in the way we’re used to.
This issue of the newsletter is dedicated to the topic of motivation
. We present you with some
questions for reflection
you can use tomorrow.
We don’t have silver bullet answers for you, but two months into this experiment, we are hearing from some teachers who have found a few things that do seem to offer glimmers of hope where motivation is concerned.
