In his periodic e-newsletter, Jeff Myers always has valuable educational insights. In his latest newsletter, he included an article titled, Inspiring Unmotivated Kids: What to Do, and What to Not Do. Drawing on research from Daniel Pink’s book, Drive, he identifies several practical ideas that parents and/or educators can use to properly motivate children:
- Have a FedEx Day.
- Try DIY Report Cards.
- Give them an allowance and some chores–but don’t combine them.
- Offer praise…the right way.
- Help kids see the big picture.
Check out the article for details about each of these great ideas!
