Problem Solving: Unmotivated Students & Behavior Problems in the "Classroom"-

It's a topic that everyone faces, but no one wants to admit to. Very few children are completely self-motivated and independent learners. How do we motivate them to do home and school when we are their teacher, too? And how do we know when it is a true behavior struggle or time for the teacher/parent to make a change? Bring your questions as well as your experiences to share.
