Have you noticed that the traditional methods for motivating students rarely seem to work?

Stickers, merit marks, reward charts, praise assemblies, certificates etc. are used in almost every school all over the world and yet most teachers struggle to get reluctant students involved in lessons. Punishments are even less effective – despite giving threats and dishing out detention after detention these students still don’t seem to care.

If you want to get more of your students engaged and taking part in lessons, it’s time to forget trying to control them and instead create a situation where they are naturally motivated, from WITHIN.

Is that really possible? Yes! And it’s super-easy when you use the step-by-step plan laid out in Rob Plevin’s Motivate the Unmotivated.
