    • Abstract:
      The article discusses mistakes many teachers make that end up harming, rather than increasing, student motivation and engagement. Topics discussed include the importance of students feeling that a subject is relevant to their lives, the danger of teachers relating academic topics to specific careers, and the importance of building enduring, rather than temporary, interest in various subjects. Graphs related to classroom engagement are also provided.
