How to Keep Students Motivated and Engaged

By March 13, 2014

Follow me on:

boredHave you ever been in a meeting and then realized that you just drifted off for about 10 minutes? You didn't even realize it but you were just planning your dinner in your head, and then all of sudden a colleague calls your name and asks what you think about what they just said. Now imagine when your students are not interested in what you are teaching, they too, drift off and think about something that does interest them.

So how do we keep our students engaged and focused? As challenging as it may be, there are ways we can increase student participation. I've created a two part series that gives you tips and strategies to help motivate interaction and participation among your students. Implement these ideas in your classroom and let me know how they work for you.

I have been surfing online more than 4 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
It is pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all webmasters and bloggers
made good content as you did, the web will be a lot more useful than ever before.
