Awakening intrinsic motivation in young people is the most important key to a meaningful and successful life. No matter how much we know about how to learn, no lasting learning is likely to take place unless we want to learn; unless we are convinced of the reasons and have the confidence and resilience to achieve our goals.
Motivating the Teenage Mind is a unique, comprehensive, practical, activity-based motivational programme for secondary students. It will give every student an opportunity to find their strengths, awaken their aspirations, become aware of the reasons for learning and show them how to confidently create a vision for their future lives.
The programme provides educators with the 7 Key Combination Lock to Motivation:
• making and giving choices • awakening curiosity and interest • nurturing dreams and setting goals • making learning relevant • raising confidence • building up resilience • rewarding achievement.
Aimed primarily for 11-16 year old secondary pupils but also suitable for 16-18 year old college students.
