Motivational Strategies

1. Adopt two mind-sets

- Substitute manipulate for motivate.
- Manipulation is very different from motivation; Manipulation involves one person doing something to someone
else in order to control his or her actions or attitude.
- First mind-set teachers need is the recognition that motivation is something we create with students not
something we do to them.
- Second mind- set is that there is no such thing as laziness. Humans are hard-wired to do demanding and
complex things
- If a student appears lazy, there is something else going on
- Unmotivated students lack the tools for the task, have too many responsibilities at home or worry that she won’t
be valued if she attempts a task and fails.
2. Empathize and build trust
- Saving by empathizing with them and by conducting ourselves in such a way that students know we have their
backs. Young adolescents need to trust that teachers won’t humiliate them or let them humiliate themselves.
- Building relationships with students, proving daily that risk taking is safe in your class, can dissolve those fears
and replace them with courage.
- Adolescents intensely value teacher’s opinions of them.
- Teacher- student relationships shouldn’t be left to chance, especially when students are struggling.
3. Remember where they are
- Teach in developmentally appropriate ways.
- Incorporate social interaction into any engagement with content; such interactions provide opportunities for
content related conversations, online class discussion, debates or collaborative inquiry.
- Switch activities every 10 to 15 minutes to maintain momentum
- Help students recover from bad decisions and failure
- Teach each topic in more than one way.
- Show enthusiasm about their subject, even after teaching it for years.
- Offer regular opportunities for self-definition; encourage students to incorporate their own culture into
4. Give descriptive feedback
- Many teachers falsely assume that judgement and evaluation spur students on.
- Feedback focused teachers recognize the power allowing students to redo their assessments and assignments in
light of specific teacher feedback.
5. Teach the way the mind learns
- Crave vividness
- Prime student’s brains form the beginning of a lesson by describing learning goals.
- Young adolescents crave structure and patterns.
- Making connections among fine and performing arts, with math, social studies, foreign languages and so on.
6. Tell stories to spark curiosity
- Young adolescents are story tellers and receivers. 1 story per unit.

Management Procedures

4. Managing the Paperwork
