Who is responsible for motivating students?

Postby TalkingPoint » Fri Sep 26, 2003 2:49 am

Is the teacher responsible for motivating students to study? Or is it each student's own responsibility to be interested in learning?

What do YOU think?

motivating is a two- way issue
firstly the teacher has to be a motivating factor in her classroom ;she has to master her subject matter ,and know how to impact this across to students in a manner that would get interested in learning the language

Motivation to learn

We as teachers of English Language are receiving students who are willing to learn English. First its our responsibility to create interest of these students to enter the language learning class, and then, generate the enthusiasm in them to continue staying in it till they have achieved what they came for.

Its like acquiring something (Student) because we (teachers) are there and then the responsibility to nurture because we have the tricks of trade-the motivation. Futher, to enhance my point of view, I would still quote the example of perenting, once you have children you have the responsibility of bringing up the best of children. You show and display the way of good parents and the children follow- if they do not know the charms of being good children they will be drifted away.

So the students have already taken the decision to learn the language.we as teachers have the rest of the responsibility to hold them till they have achieved enough to stick to it.

In my opinion,teachers should be responsible to thier students when in the low grade school.

As a business English 'trainer'. I only teach adults and I always start my first lesson by telling the students I am not there to teach them English. :!:

The look on their faces is great! :shock:

I then tell them that as they are there to learn English I am more than happy to help them do that. :wink:

You can take the ESL learner to the teacher, but you can't make them learn! :)

I believe that the teacher has to be able to motivate the students. Most students come to English classes because their parents make them. The teacher has to create an interest in the subject so that they want to learn. Otherwise they lose interest. :D

I think the responsible is the basic character of person quality is not only in child but also in adult

The teacher is responsible for motivating his/her students but that really depends on the student. That is, if he/she is willing to learn.
