I saw the following article in my Zite feed this morning about motivating employees. Startup Staffing: 10 Things A Good Leader Can Do To Keep Their Employees Motivated ( http://www.forbes.com/sites/edmundingham/2014/08/31/start-up-staffing-10-things-a-good-leader-can-do-to-keep-their-employees-motivated/)
I believe the same to be true when it comes to teachers and students.. One of the ideas mentioned in the article is to have fun.
I think for many as we celebrate Labor Day tomorrow which marks the end of the summer and the start of the school year it also marks the end of the fun. The question is why. Why can't school be fun or better yet Learning should be fun and we need to put the Fun back into learning.
So when we ask ourselves how can we help motivate our students lets ask how can we make what we are doing fun
So let's make an effort as we start the school year to have fun and let's make learning fun.
