Structuring the Course toMotivate Students
(cont.)
  • 5. Have discussion groups where you find common
    ground on the new topic. Ask the groups of four
    students to define a topic you will introduce.
  • Example What do you think are five important
    characteristics of a business leader? (for a
    basic management class)
  • Give the students 5 minutes to get acquainted, 10
    minutes to come up with five characteristics.

(cont.)
  • Then, ake 10 minutes and call randomly on
    students to report from their discussion groups
    what they listed and discuss which are most
    important. See the overlap in groups. As
    instructor, be prepared to add some
    characteristics that were not mentioned.

(cont.)
  • 6. Use topics in conjunction with current events.
    Using leadership as an example, have students
    compare Ex-President George W. Bushs leadership
    style with President Barack Obamas leadership
    style. Or, Steve Jobs of Apple with Larry Ellison
    of Oracle.

grades 2. Design tests that encourage the kind of
learning you want students to achieve 3. Avoid
using grades as threats

    learning the material and developing the behavior
    that will be successful in the workplace.
  • Focus on
  • Turning in homework on time, Using the proper
    format, and Following directions.
  • Offer challenges in the assignments not just
    busy work. Students see through it.

Motivating Students by Responding to Their Work
1. Give students useful feedback as quickly as
possible. 2. Introduce students to the good work
done by their peers. 3. Be specific when giving
negative feedback. Use the indirect approach. 4.
Avoid demeaning comments 5. Avoid giving in to
students' pleas for "the answer" to homework
problems.
23
Motivating Students to Do the Reading
1. Assign the reading and homework at least two
sessions before it will be discussed. 2. Assign
critical thinking and study questions. 3. If your
class is small, have students turn in brief notes
on the day's reading that they can use during
exams. 4. Ask nonthreatening questions about the
reading or in a quiz format. 5. Use in-class
discussion groups to discuss the reading and
report back comments to the class.
24
Dealing With Disengaged Students
1. One of the most basic things to do is get to
know your students and get them to know each
other. 2. Assess their progress often via tests,
class participation and assignments 3. Consider
using the students to help teach. Have a few
students present a topic from a new chapter each
week. 4. Take advantage of students' existing
skills, knowledge and experience.
