Darryl Bachmeier Sep 6, 2019 Success

Your baby is awake and is yelling for your attention. You drop the mop and get the baby. When you come from the baby’s room, you notice a cloud of smoke in the kitchen. Your coffee boiled until it evaporated, and the kettle is almost catching fire. You feel frustrated. You are...

Darryl Bachmeier Jul 12, 2019 Success

Recent research indicates students who received extrinsic motivation performed poorly in exams. If you promise to reward top students with some cash, they will tend to cram what you teach and pass the test. After some time, they will no longer understand what you taught them because they just focused on the reward. On the other hand,...
