Maybe motivation should be give students by different way then on pepper....
I thing if they have feeling that they "could", not "have to" learn something they do this more effectively. For example school of my nephew organised
Auschwitz Tour as a lesson of history for those students who war willing to go. In turn those group of children who go to Auschwitz check informations about this topic and they were motivated to learn more about world war II. Btw this trip was organised by polish agency which have nothing with educations or school
In conclusion maybe school should change way to teach or mandate more this kind of solutions as a normal lessons....

Great insights, Mark. Like you mention, I think giving students more voice & choice in school can be a huge motivator & make learning far more meaningful for students. Thanks for sharing about your nephew's experience!

I love these but only one of them was actually big enough to make into a poster! Most were only 34-84KB!
