It’s a challenge for both students and teachers to return to the classroom after spring break.

Today on, we focus on how to motivate students after spring break. The nicer weather has them clamoring for outdoor activities, and they get a taste of what summer vacation will have in store.

But frequent contributing writer Janelle Cox, herself a seasoned educator based in Upstate New York, takes a look at how to motivate students after spring break and keep them on track with engaging new material and short-term goals.

Janelle’s ideas include:

Janelle sums up her article thusly: “It’s not easy to re-engage your students after they have had so much fun and relaxation over spring break. Just remember that it may take an extra week or two to get them back into the rhythm, but you’ll get there.”
