High School: The motivation challenge

By the time students reach high school, they have well-established interests. Allowing students to align their interests with your activities will increase a student's motivation to work on the projects. If you are a program administrator or staff member who designs projects or activities, leave the specific subject matter as open as possible. For example, if the main objective of your assignment is to build the students' research skills and get them thinking about their futures, encourage them to compare and contrast different careers or colleges. Have them share their findings using the media of their choice.
