How to Encourage Students to Create!

boys and science

Every child has their own individual talents, and there is no reason why that talent shouldn’t be catered to in order to help them reach their fullest potential. Accommodating their specific needs will also help motivate them to become more engaged in the curriculum at hand. One unique way to do this is to allow students to give book reports and other types of essays by audio recordings instead of written material. Many school-aged children find this less intimidating, and you could even have a future emcee in your classroom!

  • Fuel the next generation of business moguls, by encouraging kids to make presentations with presentation apps.
  • Other forms of communication, not written, that educators can rock in the classroom are painting and video-creation.

Teaching them proper expression through this assignment is something they can use for the rest of their lives and it will allow them to be creative as well.
