Motivating Male Students

I love how Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal captures science and education so well. I sometimes struggle to motivate some of my male students, so I paid special attention to this particular strip!

Now I have never propositioned any of my students (oh dear lord no!). I do recall, however, one day walking around my lab while students were working on past papers, and stopping in front of three young men to explain one of the questions. I leaned over the desk in front of them, propping myself up on one elbow. I explained the question, and looked up for some acknowledgement of understanding. And I saw all three of the boys looking at me in exactly the same way as shown above.

So the moral of the story is not to wear low-cut tops and lean over desks, I guess...
