… doesn’t quite cut it as a motivational speech for why students should learn something, does it?
In the Ontario Extend Teacher for Learning module there is an activity that suggests we consider how the students might answer the question “What’s In It For Me?” or WIIFM, if acronyms are your thing.
Think of a skill, concept, idea, or process that you know in your heart of hearts that your students can really benefit from and WIIFM it for us. Write it, draw it, film it, mime it. Whatever it takes.
