Student success is predicated upon their power of choice. We cannot force it with bribes, pleading or coercion; students must choose the path of success for themselves. So, what’s a teacher to do? The ultimate objective of a teacher is to create an environment most conducive to student success, to create circumstances that encourage students to actually choose the path of success for themselves. So, how is this done?
