Best Practices for Motivating Students

OnDemand Webinar (89 minutes)

If you're tired of struggling to work successfully with unmotivated, bored, and disinterested children and teens, then you will want to be part of every minute of this OnDemand Webinar. This program is packed with dozens of innovative, ready-to-use, more effective strategies to turnaround unmotivated students in grades Pre-K through 12. These techniques are real-world, practical methods, not more theory that doesn't help remedy the problems. These methods are so new that they're not included in your training. These lively, attention-grabbing approaches will provide you with an arsenal of surprisingly different, problem-stopping solutions that are designed to work when conventional approaches fail. This program will explain why some students struggle in school due to motivation problems, then show you what you can do to systematically improve the situation. Strategies will be offered for students who say they don't need school because they'll go on welfare, marry a wealthy man, win the lottery, play pro sports, or have their family take care of them. This OnDemand Webinar includes an extensive workbook of reproducible student worksheets and posters that help build students' motivation and interest in school. A special focus will be offered on motivating students who present behavior problems, have special needs, are troubled, or are failing in school. Working with unmotivated students doesn't have to be so difficult. This OnDemand Webinar can help.
