Connecting with students who are disinterested and inexperienced
William G. Brozo July 2005 Thinking Clasroom Vol. 6, Issue. 3, p. 42
This article was written in the context of middle school education, but is still relevant for undergraduate students who are hard to reach. The author describes how to connect with students who are not interested to learn. Among other things the article states that when students claim they are not interested in anything, educators must help them discover what actually does interest them. Furthermore, another way to help youth expand their repertoire of interests is by arranging systematic opportunities for them to interact with community members who are engaged citizens and have a wide variety of life experiences.
