    Great Talks: Student Voices on the Intersection of Education and Motivation

    This Great Talk will feature two WNYC Radio Rookies from a public high school in Brooklyn, who will share “Education Motivation,” a public radio story they recently reported as part of the Neighborhood to Neighborhood project.

The Rookies will discuss the factors that alternately encouraged and discouraged their pursuit of education.

This seminar will introduce and explore pedagogical approaches and primary sources that will enable educators to bring these critical issues into their classrooms. These resources explore a range of civic choices — the decisions people make as members of a democracy.
