  1. Love it. But not sure that I’ve ever met a reluctant learner. I think it’s built into our DNA to learn those things that we have a vested interest in. And isn’t this what schooling should be about? Now I have met MANY “Disinterested Learners.” In my opinion the fault for this usually lays with either irrelevant content and/or the disinterest on the teacher’s part to either make the content authentic for the students. I usually refer such students as being victims of the “D&D Syndrome” (Disinterested and Disengaged). I always encouraged their transfer to my classes as they were always my diamonds in the rough. Jewels that demanded a setting that required my craftsmanship as an educator. 99% of the time what worked for them would work REALLY well for everyone else in the class. Their “disinterest” was a genuine and honest response to the disdain they had for teachers’ lesson plans having a more important place in the classroom than their learning needs. They taught me so much about the art of teaching.
