action hero, Indiana Jones. Mrs. Holt knows that Eric excels in class more and does not argue or  disrupt his classmates when he is able to engage in writing during the day. She does not always  implement writing into the lesson plan. The strategy for promoting self-motivation in Eric could  be that instead of always doing the same tasks for lessons, such as drawing diagrams for science  or general mathematics (i.e. 2+2=4), she could use his passion for writing to create lessons that

6 Task #2 capitalize on this passion. For example, while learning about cellular biology, Mrs. Holt could  have the class write about the different functions of the organelles and what would be an  everyday equivalent to those organelles. By tapping into Eric’s imagination, this could motivate  him to stay on task throughout the day and make him more excited about learning.  G. Active Engagement Lastly, Mrs. Holt must address promoting active engagement in Eric. Eric tends to  carelessly rush through assignments, while making mistakes, so that he can bother his  classmates. This has added stress to his teacher’s day and disrupts the flow of the lesson plan for  Mrs. Holt. His interest in school has waned because of him constantly being off task. He never  feels excited about learning.  Mrs. Holt has taught Eric and his classmates long enough to know what interests they  each have. A strategy that she could implement for promoting active engagement in Eric is to  utilize his interests, and the interests of his classmates, to create a lesson plan that makes learning fun and shows them how what they are learning will help them down the road when they are  wanting to follow their dreams for a career. Eric wants to become a scientist so that he can find a cure for diabetes because his favorite cousin cannot enjoy sugary foods without his blood sugar  going astronomically high. If Mrs. Holt can modify her science lessons by discussing various  diseases that plague the United States, such as cancer, diabetes, and Alzheimer’s. By connecting  the science lesson to diseases that dramatically affect the United States, this will hopefully  promote active engagement within Eric and make him excited about his future.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
