Teaching Tip #51

Teacherscribe’s Teaching Tip #51

Find different ways to motivate yourself 2.0.

The scenario from tip #50 worked well until I came up with another one.  This time (and this came about thanks to a conversation with a TA of mine three years ago) I came up with this scenario - Mr. Zutz announces that instead of following their regular schedule, students are free to go to whatever teacher’s room where they feel like their voice matters, where the classroom culture is healthy, where they love going every day . . .

If I walk into my room that day, how many students will I have?
That really motivates me.

Again, what motivates you?
