Model Three: Masters of Motivation

Students are motivated when teachers help them to discover themselves. MOMs teachers bring out the special strengths, abilities, talents and gifts in each child.

Teacher asks students to look around the room and write down two or three special strengths seen in fellow students (no names). Teacher collects lists and reads or displays the wide range of special strengths.

Now, teacher asks students to write down two or three special strengths or interests seen in SELF. (Teacher assures confidentiality) Each student signs name and gives list to teacher.

Teacher encourages students to use each one's special strengths in school work and home work. Teacher regularly recognizes and comments on students' special strengths.
