A few years ago, some of my fellow teachers and I started exchanging the link to this video because we thought it would be a great inspiration to our students.  So many gifted students get used to putting in minimal effort – because much of the time that is all that was required to do well when they were younger.  As they get older, it becomes harder and harder to motivate them to go “above and beyond.”  This video, from Simple Truths, might show them why the effort might be worth it.

If you are looking for more inspirational videos for your students, you might want to take a look at this post, or visit my Pinterest board, “Inspirational Videos for Students.”

  1. I love this! I have to share it with my kiddos. I see that lack of effort all the time and look for ways to try and motivate them. Thank you for sharing this! 🙂
