Motivation Lesson 2-Accepting Constructive Criticism

Motivation Lesson 2-Accepting Constructive Criticism

Author: Megan Trimble

PBIS: By learning how to set and achieve goals students will take more personal ownership for
their education. When students learn these life skills they will better embrace your ef-
forts to help them achieve. Encourage goal setting by all of your students.

This lesson has been created to be administered in a variety of ways: flipped, independent, whole-class, small-group, etc. Teachers know their students best and can adapt materials as needed.  

Each lesson in this series consists of a video overview of the topic which should be viewed at the start of the lesson to introduce the topic/concepts. Once the video has been viewed students will engage in reading 3 narratives directly related to the lesson topic and then respond to (up to 10+) prompts in the form of response questions. Document have been made for either electronic or written completion.  The classroom teacher can determine the most appropriate response questions to assign based on the length of class-time and/or total narratives reviewed.  There are supplemental multimedia for students to view/access in between narratives to help deepen their understanding of the lesson content. Finally, each lesson culminates in a short "AFL" containing differentiated questions related to concepts in the lesson.

Involving students in their own learning can also serve to motivate. Lessons that are
teacher centered do little to encourage student involvement. Motivation and learning are enhanced when students are actively involved in a lessonm through such efforts as: a cooperative learning project, role playing, or various hands-on
