Traditional advice about motivating reluctant learners rarely works because they rely on complicated programs using rewards and punishments, carrots and sticks. In this webinar, Robyn R. Jackson shares an alternative view of motivation that helps teachers entice students to learn using their own currencies.

Learn what currencies are, how to determine what currencies students carry and value, and how to use the four universal currencies of autonomy, mastery, purpose, and belonging to motivate even your most reluctant learners.

Based on the third workbook in her best-selling series Mastering the Principles of Great Teaching, this webinar will help teachers motivate their reluctant learners to invest in their own learning. By using the mastery principle “Start where your students are,” Jackson will share practical ways to motivate reluctant learners to take ownership over their own learning.
