• Ask the whole group to brainstorm the different education areas that affect their lives as teachers.

• Place them as headings in a table (may need to prompt or provide some of the

areas if the teachers find this difficult). For example:

–  –  –

• Each teacher picks the three main things that negatively affect their motivation to teach, writes them onto post-it notes and sticks them onto the chart.As a group, organise the post-it notes into themes, eg training issue or salary issue.

• Whole group discussion to rank the issues from most demotivating down to least demotivating.

• In pairs, ask the teachers to come up with solutions for each of the issues; write the answers on post-it notes and place them alongside the themed issues.

• Discuss the solutions as a group and add any new ones.

• Conclusion:

Summarise what has been said in the discussions and ask teachers whether it is a true reflection of the current situation of teachers and find out if anyone has anything else to add.
