What Students Say Will Motivate Them Most
Many educators and youth leaders struggle to motivate kids or to keep them engaged for any period of time. It’s worth periodically reminding yourself: that students, particularly those who may misbehave often, face struggles when they’re not in the classroom. Because of that, students should always be given a second chance to get their behavior in check. When we don’t give students a second chance, they can develop a self-narrative that they don’t deserve better. Teachers, coaches, parents, and administrators play a role in the sense of identity our students cultivate. In this episode, Tim and Andrew suggest some simple steps you can implement when working with students who need motivation or have failed.
