Young people need to be engaged in meaningful, relevant, and authentic activities. They need positive, supportive, and enthusiastic models. What motivates you and your students?
Real world projects that reach outside the classroom are motivating for students. Go to Teacher Tap: Contests for ideas such as the student video projects at Schoolhouse Video. Considering joining global project:
Examine the many online projects at Kids-Learn such as Beautiful Spring, Beautiful Earth. In this project, students read books, explore websites, and participate in a variety of activities. Teachers share the work of their students as part of the project. For example, one class read Under One Rock: Bugs, Slugs, and Other Ughs by Anthony D. Fredericks, then created poems, visuals, and concepts maps about insects.
Do a google search for contests.
