I feel teachers will learn to understand their students goals and what the individual student can accomplish.

It is sad that not all individuals are not able to be appropriately motivated.

      McKenzi, I really agree that we should not forget to motivate each child as they need to be. Not every child will be motivated by praise or by good grades. Some children might be motivated by doing... more
