Drive: The surprising truth about what motivates us

Do you challenge your students to mastery and to make meaningful contributions? Have you ever said to your students, “You probably want to do something interesting, let me get out of your way? This week you can work on anything you want, anyway you want, and with whomever you want.  All I ask is that you show your results at the end of the week.”
 
If we start treating students like people and not assume they’re simply horses, and get past the carrots and sticks 
ideology and look at the science, we have a chance to make our world a bit better
