"After having taken multiple classes through SCT Grad Classes, I would highly recommend this program to other educators. Professor Berg is flexible, understanding, and a great resource when questions arise, and each of the classes that are offered relate directly to specific topics and issues pertinent to education today. The ability to take classes and work at your own pace through SCT is a great bonus for busy educators."

Motivating Underachievers

Print Based Course Print Based Course


Educators, whether they are recent graduates or veteran teachers, have all come in contact with students that do not seem to be working to their ability. This course identifies the characteristics of underachievers as well as describes how positive communication, legitimate praise, and a student's self-discovery can improve the self-esteem of underachievers. Students who take this course also will analyze strategies to help underachievers that involve the improvement of study skills, time management, and remediating academic weaknesses. Strategies will be offered for investigating motivation as well as what impacts motivation in students. Suggestions and tips for working with parents of underachievers and making changes within the school system to help underachievers are also components of this course. Following this course, educators will feel comfortable designing appropriate interventions to assist underachievers in their personal classroom settings.
