Why should I come to Community Language School?
Student motivation is a challenge teachers face.
It is very complex and interrelated with a range of factors that teachers need to consider.
Teachers who set goals that are meaningful, realistic and achievable are likely to motivate their students. In these cases, students are motivated because they can see why learning about what is being taught is important.
Teachers who are enthusiastic about what they are teaching and who can present material in a sensitive, caring way are likely to motivate their students
Reflect upon and share the techniques you have used with students with low levels of motivation.
Sit the students into groups of 3 – 5 and let them answer the questions as a group and then report back to class.
