4. Give Students Choices

One strategy that teachers are now offering students is the ability to make their own choices when it comes to learning. Choice can be a powerful motivator because it helps to foster student interest. Research suggests that when teachers craft effective choices for children it gives them a sense of control, purpose, and competence.

In short, by giving students the opportunity to choose what or how they are going to learn you are cultivating students interest which is a great motivator.

Next time you are planning an activity try making a choice board. Print out a "Tic Tac Toe" board and write down nine different tasks for students to complete. The goal is for students to choose three in a row.
