The mystery word.
Some people have it. Some people don’t.
Actually most people have it if it’s something they care about.
Intrinsic or extrinsic?
How much am I responsible for motivating students to learn my subject matter?
Especially those kids who are just “stuck” in my elective class with no real thought about what might be the best elective for them?
Should we even force kids to study most subjects past middle school?
Shouldn’t all high school subjects be “electives” for students?
Wouldn’t they be more motivated if they studied subjects that interested them and realistically prepared them for their futures?
