Poster #124 – Classroom Poster to Motivate Apathetic Kids


Poster #124

Motivate apathetic kids with our All You Need To Know Is In The Class You Missed poster came from an actual teacher.  They requested this specific poster to help motivate apathetic kids who are often skipping or truant.  This teacher told us stories about students who were often missing class, but were also frustrated because they were failing those same classes that they were absent from.  Eventually, these students would become apathetic about that class and school in general.  They felt that their efforts would do not good.

Missing school and truancy are problems that grow quickly.  Students who miss school see a daunting task of getting caught up on a mountain of work, in turn, they miss more school because of the stress and fear of failure–which just continues the cycle.  Use our strong and important messages to relay your expectations to your students.  Show students that you expect them to be in class and learning.  The first step to being successful is changing the behavior that has held a student back.  Put this colorful and power poster right next to the clock in your room, in your hallways, and near the exits.  Put it anywhere students might see as they skip their next class or leave school for the day.  Give students a chance to change what bothers them and holds them back.  Motivate your students to shed their apathy, and start off in the right direction. 

Sometimes, students only need a little nudge or a reminder to do the right thing.  Use our motivational posters to give them the chance to be in your class and be successful in their education.
