As an educator, you are always trying to break the secret code of motivation because it is so critical to your students’ learning. How can you spark motivation in the classroom? How can you help students sustain it? New research is helping answer these questions and showing us that you do not need to be born motivated. Under the right conditions, any student can become motivated to learn.
