How can teachers get students to drive the car instead of merely being a passenger? How do educators motivate students? These are sometimes challenging questions that are central to teaching in the 21st century. Motivation is not finite. It is not a matter of 'having it or not.' Motivation is cultivated. This course explores the idea that teachers can help guide students to own their learning through curriculum, instructional methods as well as a positive classroom environment. Let's get more students to learn that they don't 'get' grades, they earn them! This class is not designed for you to change everything you do! Through this course, you can hopefully recognize the practices you're already doing that develop student ownership of their learning but also brainstorm, share and discover new methods that help all students!

NOTE: Required book must be acquired separately.
