Having students assess their teachers I think is the most successful approach to motivating them. I have been to various countries. I babe visited numerous educational institutions within them. I noticed in some of the classes I visited students were allowed, sorry......encouraged, to rate their teachers. The students felt that their voice was heard and were motivated to do better.Giving......again a correction.....empowering the student to have a say in their education is one of the strongest motivational actions that I have noticed.
