Motivating Learners (LIB Kentucky Room)
How do we set up a classroom that will inspire even the most reluctant learners in the back row, staring intently at their phones? Everyone is motivated to learn—the challenge is motivating them to learn the content area we are teaching. As teachers, we have the power to create classrooms that engage learners on a deep level, so they can move past the “Is this going to be on the test?” mentality we often unwittingly reinforce. The keys to creating such laboratories of learning are 1) utilizing evidence-based teaching practices; and 2) teaching in a culturally responsive manner. Whether you have been teaching one year or many, join Dr. Dede Wohlfarth during this lunch 'n learn as she explores some best practices ideas you can utilize for your class this week.
