    Re: student motivation

    Welcome to the forum.

    We'll need a bit more information before we can try to help.

    1. What age group(s) do you teach?
    2. What level are they?
    3. How many students are in each class?
    4. What do you mean by "active"? Do you want them to move around more or do you want them to talk/engage/interact more?
    5. What teaching method(s) do you currently use?
    6. Do you teach at a school where teaching methods are somewhat imposed on you, or do you have an amount of autonomy?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Hi, and welcome to the forum.

    Please update your profile with correct information as required by forum rules.

    Put a space after every comma and end every sentence with appropriate punctuation.

    Have you looked into why they lack motivation?
