Motivation is a foundation block that often gets pushed aside because it doesn’t mesh with our teacher’s or supervisor’s vision of management. In his new blog post, Chase Mielke focuses on 6 ways we all contribute to a breakdown in motivation for students. By providing a reasonable scale of performance measurement, opportunities to revive their grades and ensuring that your content is both interactive and useful for real world living, this post will make you feel more confident as a teacher and more equipped to handle the incoming class.

- Students get bored when what they are learning in school has no relevance to their present lives, or to how they envision their future lives.
