Strategies for Teaching ESL students in Your Classroom
According to Guilloteaux and Dörnyei (2008), teachers’ motivational strategies involve in some way the creation of basic motivational conditions when they worry about a good classroom atmosphere. They also worry about generating initial motivation when they try to increase students’ interests of success and bring relevant materials to the class. Giving students’ feedback is a way of encouraging positive retrospective self-evaluation. This motivational video will give some simple tools you can use to improve your way of teaching.
