Canter Curriculum: Motivation


Motivation Courses
The importance of motivation in the learning process cannot be emphasized enough. Students' lack of motivation to learn or to read poses enormous challenges to both you and your students and can create dead ends to learning and achievement. Keeping up your own motivation and energy in the classroom is equally important.

Canter self-paced graduate courses for teachers bring you practical strategies based on the latest research on motivation that can transform your classroom into a positive, vibrant, and engaging learning environment, where you feel energized about teaching and your students feel energized about learning. Effective motivation strategies that help you actively engage your students, avoid teacher burnout, and build parental engagement will help increase your teaching effectiveness and improve student performance.
