Motivating students is a challenge for the most effective and experienced teachers, even in the best of times. But the past year has been anything but the best of times. Most schools are using a mix of remote and in-person instruction, while many others are still using full-time remote instruction or socially distanced in-person learning. The result is that many students are disengaging from school, teacher morale is consistently lower than before the pandemic, and principals are trying to motivate their teachers and students to do the best they can for the second half of this school year. How can principals and teachers help boost students’ and their own morale through the home stretch of the 2020-21 school year?

Join Education Week Assistant Editor Alyson Klein and her expert guests for practical tips and discussion on how to keep students and teachers motivated as the pandemic drags on. The webinar will feature exclusive survey data on student and teacher motivation from the EdWeek Research Center that was recently featured in a special report titled “Keeping Students and Teachers Motivated and Engaged.”
