Motivating a student is not a one-size fits all solution. SOME things I consider in motivating my students. Age Nationality (culture) Kids- reward system, praises Adults (Japanese)- showing their improvement and achievement (Test Scores) - assessment every now and then will make them feel like they are not wasting their time. Teens (Filipinos)- acknowledging their efforts
-By giving verbal praise for success progress or accomplishment. -Giving personal attention to students. -Proving informative, helpful feedback when it is immediately useful. -Giving students a sense of control. -Creating a threat-free environment. -Giving praise when earned.
Inorder to motivate our students we should give them personal attention.we should use examples when needed and open communication also helps
To motivate students,we should encourage open compmunication and free thinking with students to make them feel important. Besides, you have to praise them more often.
I can motivate my students by letting them their potential and by appreciating their progress.
By complimenting their efforts.
I would use warming up activities like guessing games eg. Who am I ?, rhymes, matching words with pictures, chatting about topics that interest the students.
I’m becoming there best friend to make them feel secure and know that it’s okay to make a mistakes. I’m showing them every little progress they are having every lesson and it gives them motivation to continue
Every student has a different desire & if that's is fulfilled, s/he is automatically motivated. So, I always try to motivate my students as per their desires & expectations without compromising with the principles centred around teaching & learning. No doubt, so many times, I fail too because we can't motivate all at all times.
Help them see the value in what they are learning ad how it relates to them personally in their life
By focusing on the achievements and their progress, a lot of positive encouragement.
