Are there ways you manage using intrinsic motivation? I just finished reading Drive, by Daniel Pink. Here's an interesting synopsis video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u6XAPnuFjJc In the book he says intrinsic motivation is sourced in self-direction, mastery, and purpose, not external rewards (the video describes this wayyy better than I could). He gives some tangible ideas of how to build an intrinsically motivated environment. Such environments serve student creativity and engagement. Any ways you build self-direction, mastery, and purpose in your classrooms -- in management and in instruction?
