021/2011 well done!

021/2011 well done!, originally uploaded by rosipaw.

I rewarded myself for managing a very busy week, with two bunches of beautiful tulips. The buds are just about to open a little bit, just like the weekend is just about to start unfolding. Anticipation of something nice is often the best moment.

We all need rewards for our work, if not from others, why not from ourselves! I often worry about very weak students who keep failing, even after trying hard. What reward will they find? In the present system, praising them for their effort becomes futile if there is no measurable improvement in grades. Inner motivation is too rare amongst teenagers, but maybe we should partly blame ourselves and the system for the lack of it.
