Hi -

I certainly wouldn't recommend giving your students "just easy work" - if you want them to learn anything, you will need to challenge them and maintain high standards. As a long-time educator, one of the best resources for teaching strategies I have ever seen is the book by Merrill Harmin and Melanie Toth, Inspiring Active Learning: A Complete Handbook for Today's Teachers (2006, ASCD), which contains hundreds of really effective strategies, including strategies to motivate, extend learning, and evaluate.

I also recommend, if you are a teacher, attending a summer workshop. Many regions receive "Improving Teacher Quality" grants which are directed to universities to provide professional development for teachers. Teachers actually get stipends ($100/day) and learn many new skills in these summer institutes. Check your state's higher education website and search for them. Good luck.
