A walk for inspiration
Intrinsic motivation is an essential aspect of teaching and learning for instructors who strive to cultivate the learning environment by injecting motivation through innovative and creative teaching strategies." Intrinsic motivation refers to the reason why we perform certain activities for inherent satisfaction or pleasure; you might say performing one of these activities in reinforcing in-and-of itself"(Brown, 2007). Many traditional paradigms suggest that students of this era are de motivated and quickly get empowered by boredom. To eradicate this phenomenon they should be extrinsically goaded into educational activities. As a teacher and a facilitator I aim to spark the desire of motivation and arousal of interest among my students. With the deliberate intention of intrinsic motivation the students of preparatory year (PYP) Extensive Reading/Reading Circle were introduced by a famous book called Who Moved My Cheese, by Spencer Johnson, MD. The moral of the story is to let go of the past, get over things you cannot change, move forward, and realize that there is no reason to fear the unknown because the unknown may be better than anything you could have imagined! It’s really all about change and how change has unlimited potential depending on how you deal with it.
This educational event was a book inspired poster competition named ‘A walk for inspiration’ initiated by me (Ms. Maria Zaheer for English Department where a total of 78 students in 5 sections of PYP participated. They were asked to make an inspirational poster related to how they may embrace change in their lives.
