Teachers, please join this month’s Teacher Talk conversation post by discussing the question: What works and does not work for motivating students to learn in your classroom?
Welcome, teachers! Our words matter. Please join the conversation. We must remember out of all things and people involved in education, nothing makes a greater impact on a child’s education than a teacher. That is not to devalue the other stakeholders, for they all play a significant role, but we have the greatest potential to impact change, for we are the change agents in the arena where the most difference can be made–the classroom. And though we may feel at times that things are out of our control, we have to believe otherwise and find the courage to confront the things that we know we must change. We have to help change the narrative and believe that we can help move the needle and change education. Our words matter.
Note on comments. Please post honest, open comments. We have to have real conversations to make any kind of significant change, even if those conversations are tough. But, please do not post comments that are degrading and/or defamatory to any individuals. I will not be able to approve them, and unfortunately, your voice will not be heard.
