Do you have unmotivated student?
I’m regularly asked: ‘what about the child who is completely “unmotivated”; who just doesn’t want to learn anything?’ My answer is that those children doesn’t exist. There are kids who don’t want to learn particular things, in particular settings, and there are those who don’t find it easy to learn some things in some setting; but the generally lazy child who doesn’t want to learn anything is a myth. What the questioner actually mean is: ‘They don’t want to learn what I want them to learn, when I want them to learn it, in the way I want them to learn it.’
