Assunto:  how to motivate teens in class?
 
Mensagem:  Nowadays most everybody's attention span is extremely short, and I believe that the Internet and video games are overwhelming teenagers with lots of distractions. Teens are sleeping less hours, schools are having serious discipline issues, parents have become way lenient, and language schools are feeling the burden because teens come to school barely awaken.

If they are not motivated in class is because they do not care about what is being taught and they do not care that their parents are spending money on a second language education that they are not making the most of.

My suggestion is conduct a survey, check the logistics of your school, analyze your competitors, what are they doing to keep their teens coming back to class. Talk to parents, have parents join forces with you so that their kids will have someone to motivate them to make to class on time.

Maybe you can create an online version of your lesson and offer this to students who can't make to school.

There are many ideas, suggestions, but now new things fade so fast because teenagers now believe that they know better than their parents and educators what's best for them.
