Salam, Hello people!:) sorry for not updating quite some times.Been busy with paperwork, clickers, iftar, FRP, student notes and all. I just want to inform here that I am happy, I am now part of the The Apple member. The people out there are very friendly and welcoming me. Plus, we are warm to share knowledge and ideas.
Well, I have something to share with u guys! I hope my students who read this post could share their opinion regarding the topic “THE REASONS STUDENTS AREN’T MOTIVATED TO COMPLETE THEIR HOMEWORK” 🙂 It was originally by Julia G Thompson but I need to clarify it in our study culture in Poly itself.
