Our Most Amazing
Motivational Strategies
For Your Most Unmotivated Students

 


 

Chances are you have way too many unmotivated and apathetic students in your classroom again this year. You've probably noticed that conventional methods of inspiring students to care about school, tend to routinely fail, especially with your most unmotivated youngsters.

workshop trainer Ruth Herman WellsI'm trainer and consultant, Ruth Herman Wells, M.S. As a workshop instructor, I read thousands of evaluations every year. I know that this magazine issue has some of the best student motivational strategies that exist, because that's what our workshop participants note on our seminar evaluation form. Hopefully, you'll agree that these devices are powerful interventions to turnaround even the most unmotivated students.

Grad Mag:
For Students Who Know That
Life Without a Diploma
Can Be a Drag

Classroom Motivation PosterTo reach the most students possible, it's critical that you use a variety of styles of intervention. Not all students learn best with their ears, for example. This motivational intervention is geared for students who respond best to active, tactile activities.

Intervention: Ask students to create "Grad Mag," a magazine that touts the benefits of graduating high school. Poster #283 provides an example. Students can use conventional art supplies or computers to create their magazine. Prior to starting on the art work, allow students to research the benefits and hazards of getting a high school diploma. They can consider variables like income, type of job, and job status.

If a group or classroom of students is involved in this project, students can be assigned to make different components of the magazine, such as the cover, back page, table of contents, and so on. Once the elements are completed, the magazine can be assembled, reviewed and discussed.

Indirect motivational methods such as this strategy, may pack a bigger punch than more straight-forward, verbal approaches proclaiming the importance of education and a diploma. While it might be easier for you to present this point of view instead of having your students research and create it, you will find this method to be far more effective, especially with oppositional youngsters.


Man vs Machine

poster to motivate studentsPower up your students to care about school by showing them how automation is quickly taking over entry level jobs, as well as many jobs that have been available to people without a high school diploma.

Intervention: To implement this intervention, use a voice that sounds like a robot, or alternatively, record your voice using a device to make it sound robotic. If you search for "make my voice sound like a robot," you'll see plenty of options. Say in a robotic voice: "Any job you can do without skills, a robot can do better." If you prefer, you can substitute the word "diploma" or "math" for the word "skills."

Next, discuss with your students why employers might much prefer virtual employees to real ones. Include answers like "robots never have to take lots of bathroom breaks" and "robots know how to do math." Poster #148, pictured at right provides illustration.

 

Education:
Now, More Important Than the Air You Breathe

motivational posterIt may be a sad commentary on our culture, but it is probably necessary to sell and market the value of school and education to students who have not discovered that truth for themselves. If you have disinterested, unmotivated students, part of your job must include convincing those youngsters that school and education will be absolutely essential to their survival.

Intervention: If you look at Poster #168, you can see that the word "diploma" is literally made of money. That is a concept that can reach some of your most uninterested students: that schools offer free diplomas that are made of money. One estimate is that high school grads out-earn dropouts by $329,000 per lifetime. Ask your students to estimate what an extra $329,000 per person –$658,000 per couple– could buy. Also ask students to choose whether they would prefer to have $329,000 more or less than everyone else.

 

There's No Excuse
For Dropping Out

Classroom PosterDon't let students' unrealistic excuses ever justify leaving school. A classic reason some boys offer for quitting school is that they plan to be famous sports stars so they will never need an education.

Intervention: Open students' eyes to the truth. Poster #170 illustrates that the NFL, NBA and MLB all want players to have a diploma. There are plenty of other types of excuses so be sure to confront whatever untrue explanations your students present. In our books, we have interventions for virtually all of these excuses, including "I'm going on welfare," "I'll marry a wealthy man," and "I'm going to win the lottery."

The Best Apathy-Busters: Turnaround Bad Attitudes With These Innovative Interventions

The Best
Apathy-Busters:


Turnaround Bad Attitudes
With These Innovative Interventions

 

 

If you are seeing more and more apathetic and negative students, you will love the use-now strategies included in this issue. These innovative, attention-grabbing methods are especially designed to work when conventional approaches fail, and were developed to turnaround even the most negative, entrenched child or teen. I'm Ruth Herman Wells, M.S., the Director and Trainer for Youth Change Workshops, and these dynamic strategies are taken from my live, online, and on-site training workshops, as well as from my Breakthrough Strategies to Teach and Counsel Troubled Youth books and posters.
 

Student Apathy Strategies


Strategy #1

 

School Pays Off

Student apathy posterApathetic students might see more value to school if they knew the pay-off for education. You can use this method verbally, as a poster, as a discussion starter, or as an activity. At left, you can see the intervention. It's our Poster #45. You can view additional, similar posters here.
The poster says: Graduates accept free education and a free diploma so they earn $329,000 more than everybody else. Each diploma doubles the dollars."

 

Strategy #2

 

Reach Beyond the Bluster

For kids who are "wrapped in barbed wire," their apathy and harshness hiding a very gentle and vulnerable child, ask them to decide which they would rather have: "a bruised heart or a boxed heart?" This can be a very effective intervention strategy with students who are guarded and prickly due to negative experiences with adults who are supposed to be consistent, caring role models. A follow-up activity: have the student create art or poetry illustrating some of the phrases shown in quotes above. This activity is best done one-to-one, in small groups, or used by counselors and mental health professionals.


Strategy #3

 

Reality Wins All Arguments

While lots of youngsters complain about their circumstances, some kids complain a lot and often about where they ended up. Some of these youngsters have plenty of legitimate reasons to complain, and some of
them don't. Either way, you can encourage your discouraged complainers to "bloom where they're planted." This is a wonderful intervention for several populations. For example, this approach has worked well with foster kids who are not happy to be moving a new foster care placement. The lyrical phrases shown above work really well as the basis for illustrations by students. Poetry, essays, collages, and other creative activities can also produce some very inspiring, memorable results, and initiate the change you want to engender.

 

Strategy #4

 

Hey, It's Me Plus 25

If you work with youngsters so apathetic or discouraged that they can't really imagine ever having a positive future, or any future at all, ask them to write an email or letter to you as though 25 years have elapsed. In the letter, students can describe what happened to them since they last saw you. For non-writers, they can draw or make a video or audio recording instead of writing, or, you can write for them. Students can make blog entries if they prefer that to a simple letter or email. Here's a variation for students who really resist this strategy: Have them make the letter be about someone else, perhaps a friend or someone they admire or feel neutral about. Once the letter is complete, you will have indirectly learned a lot about the letter's creator, even though the document is ostensibly about a third party. For students, who say "they don't care," ask them to complete the task as if they did care (even though they say they don't care).

 

Strategy #5

 

You Choose

Put the following phrase on the board and ask students to discuss: "This strategy is especially useful for children and youth who hurt themselves, abuse substances, are in gangs, or self-endanger. For younger students and for some other youngsters, you may wish to change the phrase to be a bit gentler. You can use this phrasing instead: "The same power you have to hurt yourself, you have to help yourself." Emotions fuel behaviors. The more you can help students manage their emotions, the less those emotions will interfere with school and education.


Strategy #6

 

When Crime Doesn't Pay

For kids who plan to use illegal activities as their source of future income, you can have a lot of impact by pointing out some surprising realities of your local, state and federal laws. For example, depending on which laws they break, offenders can lose not only the money gained by illegal actions, but also their home, possessions, and vehicles. Under some federal laws, the homes and possessions of relatives and friends may be seized even if these items weren't directly involved in the commission of the crime. It's important to stay aware that illegal activities are not near as lucrative as your kids tell you. Auto theft generates about $18,000 per year, for example, less than what a typical high school grad earns. Even worse, the authorities can take anything related to the auto theft while no one can just take away the graduate's money.

Motivate Wannabe Sports Stars to Stay & Work in School

Motivate Wannabe
Sports Stars
to Stay & Work in School

 

course instructor Ruth Herman WellsHi, this is Ruth Herman Wells, M.S. I'm the instructor for Youth Change's Maximum-Strength Motivation-Makers online workshop, and all the other courses offered by Youth Change. I have dozens and dozens of unexpected, knock-your-socks-off methods to motivate unmotivated students.

Here are some of my favorite, most powerful classroom management methods to motivate students who are just totally and resolutely unmotivated. These methods are perfect for elementary, middle and high school students, as well as special ed students, charter school pupils, and children in juvenile justice and treatment centers.

 

Best Methods to
Motivate Students Who Are Unmotivated

And Plan to be Sports Stars So They Won't Need School

 

For Unmotivated Students Who Say
"I Won't Need School When I'm in the NFL"


sports star poster 169Many wannabe sports stars truly believe they will never need school or education. They're so certain that they're going to be pro athletes, not much reaches them to convince them otherwise.

For years, teachers and others have asked us for interventions that might convince these unmotivated students that they'll still need school and an education– whether they become sports stars or not.

Here is a brand new device that you can use verbally, or if you grab the intervention from our Facebook page, you can print it as a worksheet or poster.

Poster 169 (pictured above) says "Less than one in a million guys get into the NFL. There is that one guy and even he needs a diploma." That's right. NFL players need a high school diploma to get in. Shouldn't your students know that?

 

For Unmotivated Students Who Say
"I Won't Need School When I'm a Sports Star"


sports star motivational poster 170The motivational intervention may offer your wannabe sports stars information they didn't know.

You can use this intervention as a provocative mystery. It is also a sure-fire discussion-starter, or a captivating handout or motivational poster. It's Poster 170, but it's got so few words on it, you can quickly make your own if you prefer.

The intervention asks "What must every NBA, NFL, and MLB player have?" The answer is: a diploma. That answer may startle some of your unmotivated students. Some may actually become more interested in school.

 

For Unmotivated Students Who Say
"I Won't Need School When I'm in the NBA"
 

motivating school poster 35So many students yearn to get into the NBA, that we couldn't leave out that sport. For years, one of our best-selling posters has been Poster #35, pictured here. It's the perfect device motivate students who find school unnecessary to their future status as an NBA sports star.

Here is the information shown on that poster; you can use the information verbally: "Only 1 in 150,000 guys gets into the NBA. This is that one guy and even he needs a diploma."

For a follow-up activity, have students research which offers the best odds: Winning the lottery, being struck by lightening, or getting into the NBA. In our workshops (click), we provide lots of strategies for helping unmotivated students understand that they will need education whether they make it as a sports star or not. Hopefully, you'll find that the methods to motivate students that we've offered here should give you some innovative, compelling strategies to start using today.

You’ve Never Seen Student Motivational Strategies Like This Before

You've Never Seen
Student Motivational Strategies Like This Before

 
 

 

motivational poster 284This issue is filled with brand new motivational strategies that you– our blog subscribers– are seeing before almost everyone else.

Plus, we have new online classes (with credit and hours) to help you solve student motivation problems before they start.

At right, you see Poster 284, another brand new motivational intervention. You can ask your students to create their own "Graduate Magazine" like the one shown here.
 

The Most Amazing Motivational Strategies

for the Most Unmotivated Students

 

It Slices! It Dices! It Graduates!

This intervention can be used in dozens of ways. It's a play on the type of glib, hard-to-forget slogans you hear in infomercials. It's a big hit at our workshops. Our inservice workshops are coming soon, so you can get more strategies like this one at that conference. If you have a bad budget, you can still attend because our blog subscribers can come for just $84, which is half-price. Click here for details.

Here's the motivational strategy– but remember this intervention works really well in lots of different ways– as a sign, poster, card, name tag, door hanger, t-shirt, or even as a note on your board.

Write on the sign, poster, or whatever modality you choose: "Ask me how to earn $329,000." (That is how much more students will earn if they get a high school dipoma.)

 

Motivation: the Movie

View our new, free video tutorials on motivating unmotivated students. (We also have longer online video classes on motivational strategies too.) These videos are packed with ideas to motivate students. These strategies are such big stars that they've got their own movies. This is such a quick, easy way to learn a lot of dynamic student motivational methods in a short time.

Even better, for now, these video tutorials are free. We hope you'll give our new movies great reviews.

 

You Have the Power

Here are some inspiring words to urge your students to finish school. These words could be on a poster on your wall, or they can be used verbally. These words are intended for use with students who are in crisis, using substances, self-destructive, or involved in self-harming behaviors.

Say: "The same power that you have to destroy yourself, you have to save yourself." The words are attributed to Les Paul, the legendary musician, who overcame enormous difficulty to reach his dreams. A good follow-up activity: ask students to read about Les Paul's determination.


It's Your Choice: Twice the Pain or Twice the Gain?

Hopefully you've already been teaching your students that being a high school dropout is like starting a race miles behind everyone else. As we've told you in past issues of this blog, dropouts are the last hired and the first fired. When economics are rough like right now, dropouts suffer disproportionately.

Here is just one example that makes a great motivational strategy. The higher the education level, the lower the unemployment rate. That may happen because grads have more education and skills to fall back on. How disproportionate does it get? Dropouts' unemployment is about twice that of peers who graduate– and just one more of a million reasons to finish school.

 

There's No "Q" in Classroom

This intervention would work best as a poster on your wall. Write "There's no QUIT in this classroom. How can I help you succeed?"

Next, dialogue with students about how you can assist them throughout this school year– even when they feel like quitting because a task is hard, or they are faced with other kinds of problems.

This is a perfect intervention for work refusers. Work refusers tend to be a very hot topic in our live workshops. We spend hours on them. If you can't attend a live inservice course with us, hopefully this intervention will help a bit.

Fix Classroom Management Problems: Repair Your Broken School Year

 

teacher classroom management blog

 

Fix Classroom Management Problems:
Repair Your Broken School Year

 
 

 

K-12 Keynote Speaker Ruth Herman Wells

There was definitely a theme to many of our Fall '07 workshops.

I'm the trainer for the live Breakthrough Strategies to Teach and Counsel Troubled Youth Workshops, Ruth Herman Wells, M.S.

In our live behavior and classroom management workshops, many of you continued to emphasize that your classroom and school have become seriously out-of-control.

To start off the new year, it only makes sense to give our top tips to repair serious problems at your school or agency.

By the way, for those of you who did attend one of our Fall seminars, we have a new page full of the resources you heard and saw in the workshop. This Past Workshop Participants Only page is just for those of you who have attended the workshop. Reach it by clicking here.

Here are our initial suggestions for what to do to improve problematic classroom management enough to salvage a school year that has been unusually difficult or dangerous.

 

Strategies to Fix

Classroom Management Problems

 

Start Over

Many professionals do not realize that it is always easier to stop the problematic class than to salvage it.

No, you don't have to board up your classroom and hang a "Closed" sign on the door, but understand that it is much harder to fix a broken class than to just start over.

To start over, you can declare the old class as done, and begin fresh in every possible regard. Scrap the rules and make new ones. Rearrange your furniture, develop a new seating plan, and even consider renaming your class. It will also be important to discuss the problems with the class, and to work with your students to make this new venture work better.

However, these initial changes will not be enough. You have to be different and teach differently. It's way past time to understand that "same-old-same-old" methods will not magically start working.

It may be time to realize that you must upgrade your skills and methods for working with out-of-control youth. Some specific suggestions to begin those upgrades are below.

It's Not Just About Relationships Anymore

You may really struggle to manage your most misbehaved students if you use relationship-based approaches with all of them.

While we love relationship-based methods with most students, youngsters are not one-method-fits-all creatures. Relationship-based methods (including character ed, values clarification, trust-building, and praise) will fail with the most unmanageable students, conduct disorders (CDs).

This blog's second and third issues gave you an introduction to conduct disorders. (Click the menu at the top of the page to view those Introductory blog issues.)

Those issues alerted you to avoid most relationship-based and conventional approaches with CDs. If you use just one style of behavior control methods with all your students, you probably have already discovered that "nothing works" to control your class.

Here are some resources that show you methods that will work far better.

If ou want more than just introductory help, click here to get all the information you need on conduct disorders in one place, our Conduct Disorders: All the Best Answers for the Worst Kid Problems book. The bottom line: Until you learn about conduct disorders, regaining control may remain impossible.
 

Become a Fearless Manager

You know the teachers– the ones who can manage almost any class or group.

No one can simply hand you techniques and make you one of those teachers. Even the most updated methods can't hide any fear or worry you may have. Our strategies will help, but they won't alleviate the need to become one of those fearless managers who know that they can manage any class, no matter how difficult.

The truth is that students have amazing radar. They read us adults like open comic books. If part of you is really worried about successfully controlling a group, that fear becomes like neon, and everything else you do is reduced to a whisper.

You need to develop that internal fortitude and certainty that you can manage even the most unmanageable group. To gain that, we suggest watching the true pros of class and group management.

We especially recommend that you find someone with a similar personality and style. Juvenile court and corrections staff, vice-principals, alternative ed teachers, and special ed teachers often provide some of the best models because they have honed their skills with the toughest students.

 

Students Wanted, No Skills Required

Since most schools have no formal curriculum to train kids how to be students, you are expecting students to have skills they may never have been taught.

That's like expecting students to know how to swim even though they've never been taught.

You have to actually teach the school behavior skills that you want students to use in your classroom. Otherwise, you set rules that many students are untrained and unprepared to follow.

You absolutely must teach all the school skills that students need. A few of the most important on a long list include: respect for teachers, how to be part of a class discussion, what words to use, how often to talk out during class, how to get help from teachers, and how to interact with other students.

Be sure you work on students' motivation too. Skill training alone isn't enough. You must convince students that school is incredibly important.

Need dynamic ways to do that? Use the motivational interventions pictured on our posters. You don't have to buy the posters; just read the ideas and use them.

 

Set Behavior Standards and Ensure Compliance

You can not permit the kind of behavior problems that have been occurring at some sites this school year. Some of the participants in our workshops  have described students who are inappropriately touching teachers, openly defying teachers, and entering and leaving classrooms at will.

You can not allow the standards for behavior to slide. There is no way back if you do. Right from the very start, you must have high expectations and compel your students to live up to those standards.

We have heard from teachers who just keep teaching while students refuse to quiet down or pay attention. Imagine the chaos if other compliance-based settings operated in such a manner. For example, would there be any order in a grocery store if the clerk just handed you your groceries after you announce that you'll be taking your groceries but not paying?

You are the "brakes" for out-of-control students. When you don't provide acting-out students with help to stop misbehavior, there is nothing to slow them down.

You must stop instruction and address misconduct. Ideally, you will get to the point where you can prevent disruption before it starts. For now, if you are someone who does need to repair a "broken" school year, be sure to promptly acknowledge and effectively address misbehavior. The longer you wait, the worse it will get.
