Lighting of a Fire

William Butler Yeats once said “Education is not the filling of a pail but the lighting of a fire.”

This statement makes me think of our most difficult students and what we do to keep them engaged in the learning process. Although, not an easy task at times, it is OUR responsibility to reach EVERY student.

Think about your most difficult students. What are you doing to capture them? How are you trying to motivate them?
