These are all rendered for higher quality.

Intrinsic Motivation for the Classroom

Bring on the i.

I just finished reading several books about intrinsic motivation. None of the research is new, so why aren’t we incorporating intrinsic motivation into the classroom more?

Here are a few ideas I have on how to add some i to your classroom.

Get into the Flow in your Classrooom

There is an experience that happens in many of my classes…

Then I broke it down for myself. I understand that this does not capture anywhere near the book, but it is filtered through my experience in the classroom.

Here is the most simple breakdown of how we get in the flow in my classes.
