At my school, Hispanic students, both male and female, and also African

    “Motivating Students” By Flormaria Quinones Educators throughout the nation have become frustrated with the demand of how to encourage and motivate their students especially those that are not prepared academically and socially. In this case a student will generally display disruptive behavior, a lack of interest, and unrealistic ambitions.

    hard to get students to see the value of Humanities in their day to day lives. Sometimes "Period Classes", like 20th Century, make it easier to show a student how the class content applies to their day to day lives. A class like "Intro to Hum" applies to their lives in a much more abstract was than a tangible way. I do not agree with rewarding a student with extra credit or other rewards for doing what they need to do to be successful! I think that is a bad way to motivate a student - because life

    writing teacher who is too strict or inflexible can give students the excuse they may be seeking to withdraw or not perform in class. Some students are only too eager to proclaim that they can’t possibly meet high standards in writing, so there is “no use in even trying.” Putting stringent rules in place for a writing class does not necessarily provide an atmosphere that will foster successful student writing. But being lenient and

    A quote from Brian Whitley, and research author, reveals the sincerity of most students, “On college campuses across the country, legions of students spend their weekends compulsively refreshing their email inboxes, noshing on snacks, and maybe doing a month’s worth of laundry. Shouldn't they be studying? Well sure. They just don't want to”(1). Students procrastinate to do their school work because they have no ambition or drive to want to achieve something. Of course they have long term plans to

    MOTIVATING STUDENTS Some students seem naturally enthusiastic about learning, but many need-or expect-their instructors to inspire, challenge, and stimulate them: "Effective learning in the classroom depends on the teacher's ability to maintain the interest in the first place". Whatever level of motivation the students bring to the classroom will be transformed, for better or worse, by what happens in that classroom. Unfortunately, there is no single magical formula for motivating students. Many

    I believe a classroom should be a sanctuary of learning in which the students know from the beginning what is expected of them and the teacher should discuss what is expected of her as a teacher. There needs to be an understanding amongst all involved with the children education. This understanding can lead to a fun filled adventurous classroom that encourages students to strive for the best. I believe when students and teachers are able to learn from each other, the learning environment can be successful

    Motivating students to work in the classroom is not an easy task to perform. Teachers need to have classroom management and establish a conducive learning environment to meet the need of all students. As an educator, I have experienced that most of the students come to my classroom with a positive attitude and eager to learn while others come with very low self-esteem, not wanting to learn creating disruptive behaviors. In one of the articles assigned this week, it is emphasized that when students

    (from mine in particular) when I enjoy learning the information, the challenges associated with learning the material do not seem as difficult to overcome when compared to a subject matter that I lack interest in. Also, I have noticed that showing a student what life can be like if they were to push themselves academically can motivate him/her to study harder. On a side note, (but relative to the topic) I currently am a security officer at a juvenile detention center and I have helped children write
