The SecEd Podcast: Boosting student curiosity and motivation in the classroom

Three experienced teachers discuss tips and advice for how we can foster student curiosity and motivation in the secondary school classroom, with lots of examples and ideas for your teaching.

We ask what curiosity and motivation look like in a classroom and discuss the key elements of the classroom environment and our teaching and pedagogy that can help to create curious and motivated students.

Not least, we ask how we can create a “culture of curiosity” that students buy into in our classrooms, including inclusive practice, building strong relationships with our students as well as the importance of effective classroom routines and teacher role-modelling (and how they can do this).

We discuss how we can motivate students who are struggling in their personal lives and as such arrive in our classrooms not ready for learning.
