"SCT worked very well for me in completing my continuing education credits in areas that interested me and were applicable to my job. I was more than impressed with the quality of the text books and the caliber of the assignments. The coursework was meaningful and special attention was given to the application of the material to the classroom. I never felt like an assignment was a waste of time. That is so important in our busy lives. SCT even worked with me to modify some assignments so that they would be more relevant to my position as a specialist. I recommend SCT without hesitation."

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.
