motivation... what a word ! I have all my life to learn how to motivate teenagers. That's not a easy job. I try to propose different activities and not spend too much time on the same subjects. Technologies are a means to motivate students : computers, e-pals, TV... But we can't always talk of what they like, I mean, there are some programmes that we teachers have to do.

i am honestly SO confused by your post, lara.

in one breath, you say that you've never heard of a child failing a grade for not living up to his/her responsibilities, then in the next, you say you were told by your own teacher that you would fail a grade if you didn't live up to your responsibilities.

no im saying i've had teachers humiliate me. i worked hard at school and i have the grades to prove it. there was one teacher who had her favourites and others in our class she disliked and picked on us for no reason whatsoever. i prefered her humiliating me than taking a disliking to us and holding us back. she would give me grade D's for essays i worked hard on. i went to other teachers for advice after she told me i didn't need help they told me there was nothing wrong with my work. in my exams i took in her subject i got 97% and they weren't of a different quality to the work i had produced for her for 3 years.

I usually don't grade the homework and I'll never put a 0 (that's the French system) to someone who didn't make his homework.
This morning, I went to visit a colleague in her classroom. I sat at the back near a student who... slept during the whole lesson ! How can we motivate him ? I mean, he's 16, almost an adult, right ?
What's odd is that my colleague hadn't even see him ! She was surprised when I told her !
I love to move a lot in my classroom. I never stay before the board. Nowadays the teacher is no longer the Master who delivers his knowledge. Nowadays, what we need is COMMUNICATION : between the students themselves, between the students & the teacher... The teacher somehow has to disappear from the classroom...

I think you are and will continue to be an excellent teacher. I have amazing respect for my friends who are out teaching. It doesn't sound like an easy job.

I'm against punishments in general but we are being told that students who don't do their homework must be punished. So I'm looking for useful punishments. For example, there's no interest in copying texts or exercises three times. The student won't learn anything by copying... I was thinking of asking them to learn some nursery rhymes by heart and "sing" them in front of the classroom !

Do you have any ideas ?
Don't forget that they have to be useful ! Thanks !


i dont think singling out a student by making him/her sing a song for not doing homework or an assignment is the way to go. grading a student by completing work, how well they did, is usually the system in the u.s. if im not mistaken. i understand it is a hard position to be in.

as a child, i was constantly humiliated, or singled out by teachers whether i did my work or not. and it does have lifelong effects. i can remember all those incidents like they happened yesterday.

i dont agree with those methods.

I'm trying to remember what my teachers did to me when I didn't do my homework.

I know that I got in trouble. That didn't help.

They tried humiliation tactets. That didn't work, either.

They tried threating to fail me. That only made me want to do less.

Tough subject. I think part of it depends on the student. Do you think he/she is not doing the work because they are lazy and don't want to, or do you think they are not doing it because they don't get it?

If you think it may be they don't get it, could you try spending a little extra time going over stuff with the student?

Actually, nobody has really brought me some new ideas on how to deal in a useful and not humiliating way with students who refuse to do their homework. I think we all agree on the fact that teachers shouldn't humiliate their students.

i don't neither. These are terrible teachers. I myself have some bad memories of some teachers like that. That's exactly what I reject.
