Saitama JALT:

Motivation Boot C.A.M.P.

Date: Sunday, March 12th, 2017 Time: 2:00 PM - 4:30 PM

Speaker: Chris P. Madden

The term C.A.M.P. comes from collaboration, autonomy, mastery, and purpose, and together we will examine how to weave them into our classrooms. Firstly, ignore intrinsic motivation. Act as though everything you do (and don't do) in the classroom (and beyond) affects your students' extrinsic motivation.

In the first half of this workshop, I will show you two short videos with accompanying worksheets that I use to stimulate motivation. The first, in which Steve Jobs talks of collaboration, challenges Japanese people to examine their stratified society. The second, in which Daniel Pink examines autonomy, mastery, and purpose as they relate to motivation, will enhance your students' understanding of the true roots of inner drive.

In the second half of this workshop, we will discuss the personal and professional factors influencing our motivations, and I will explain the steps to facilitating the most motivational classroom I have created.
