How Do You Motivate Adolescents?
Note: This program was originally available as part of the Adolescent Language and Literacy: Supporting Emotional, Social, and Academic Growth conference.
SLPs working with adolescents are often thwarted by the students’ lack of participation and seeming “indifference.” To develop meaningful intervention plans and establish and sustain student engagement, we need a deeper understanding of adolescents’ unique characteristics and the contexts they’re in. In this session, we’ll provide useful information on the hallmarks of adolescent social, cognitive, and linguistic development; a proven model of intrinsic motivation; adolescents’ current social, educational, and technological contexts; and their implications so you can effectively work with adolescents.
You will be able to:
- identify key characteristics of social, cognitive, and linguistic development of adolescents as they relate to educational programs and settings
- describe a highly regarded evidence-based model for intrinsic motivation that has been used effectively with various populations, including adolescents
- list common demands of current social, educational, and technological contexts
- apply the information to develop and implement instructional programs for adolescents
