There are different strategies that can be applied in class in order to motivate students and get a better quality education. These strategies involve some ingredients such as student, teacher, content, method (process) and environment that help to analyze the context, and therefore to increase learner’s motivation. Williams and Williams (2011) suggest some strategies that can be considered during class to increment this motivation. To begin with, Williams and Williams (2011) state that the first ingredient in order to increase motivation is the student. Since every student is different one to another, teachers need to find different procedures that allow students to learn as much as possible. In order to establish these procedures, teachers need to keep in mind the individual and social factors that affect students; in that way, the first strategy that should be considered to increase motivation is to provide students with support, if they have any difficulty with a particular topic, and opportunities for them to become active participants; it is also important to involve parents during the learning process, this means, parents should encourage and motivate students to do well in school.

Embracing Messy Learning

Embracing Messy Learning | ELT Britannia | Scoop.it

I am slowly learning to embrace the struggles that students experience as they engage with authentic work. If I don't allow learning to be messy, I eliminate authentic experiences for students as thinkers and creators. I find it important to regularly remind myself that frustration leads to insights and that learning is not necessarily the equivalent of mastery.

Learning is messy. It is a recurring process which is always recommencing itself.

The article is good, but what I really love is the term "messy learning" itself. So much teaching in school has the ideal of creating clairity and being systematic in every part of the learning process. But that is simply not how learning happens. We need to embrace the messyness!

The messy learning described here mirrors the struggles and frustrations our Learners face in communicative classrooms - a inherent part of the process of learning a language.
