Thanks to its partnership with publisher Eye on Education, EducationWorld is pleased to present this tip from Helping Students Motivate Themselves: Practical Answers to Classroom Challenges, by Larry Ferlazzo. The book combines literacy development with short and rigorous classroom lessons on topics such as self-control, personal responsibility, brain growth and perseverance. This article describes the top 7 ways in which teachers can maximize the success of lessons.
There are obviously many, many things that teachers can do to maximize the chances of an individual lesson going well. This tip shares just a few elements that research (and personal experience) tend to say are important. It is not designed as a universal checklist for teachers to ensure that every lesson they do includes every characteristic listed. On occasion, some successful lessons might not include any of these qualities. Other times, some duds might include most of them.
