How can we create classroom cultures that support and nurture highly motivated learners? It is generally acknowledged that motivation plays a critical role in learning as does creating the conditions for learning to take place. Creating an environment of vulnerability and trust coupled with strategic teaching often makes the difference between learning that is superficial and shallow and learning that is deep and internalized. Let’s explore the relationships that exist within the classroom environment while focusing on the intentional structures you can create to ensure all students achieve the goal of becoming, life-long learners.
