Module 4. Cooperation

There was a school that had a problem with motivating students. They tried traditional methods, but to no avail. The teachers decided to use unconventional methods instead and created a space in which students could express themselves freely without inhibitions. What were the results? Read about it! – PRETTY THINGS WORKSHOP.

 

How to engage students in doing things for others? Voluntary work is a good idea. It must be remembered, however, that the main challenge in this kind of undertakings is to keep volunteers motivated. The initial enthusiasm gradually decreases, especially when problems arise. The teacher has to discuss student obligations with the children, analyse potential problems and ways of dealing with them.

Look at how one of our schools engaged students in a voluntary project and promoted reading!
