Sometimes we wonder as teachers, are we really so bad at giving instructions? Were they unclear all the time? Or perhaps it could be the students' choice not to listen and absorb?
Should teachers go to the class to motivate and to inspire? In what ways will a learner be expected to be motivated and inspired if what he is about to do isn't his cup of tea? lacking both in aptitude and interest. Worst still is not what he had chosen to do?
Great teachers inspire. I agree.
But it takes a miracle for a disinterested to be inspired the way it is traditionally expected (of a great teacher).
