Research has shown that a traditional reward-punishment model does little to promote student achievement; however, concrete researched-based ways to motivate students do exist. The qualities of motivation as it applies to the teaching and learning process will be examined and experienced in diverse ways: the human needs that bond teachers and students; the driving force behind all human behavior; inspiration and peak performance for both teachers and students on a daily basis; energizing classroom strategies that make a meaningful difference; and motivational frameworks that encourage change and achievement.
