If you want your students to learn, if you want your students to learn long term, if you want your students to progress — you have to give them “the end in sight”. You have to give them the taste of success. Nothing – not candies or sweet words, not the hand raised in wrath or a scream – nothing can serve as great a catalyst as success.
