Do you mean material for teaching or materials that teach you how to motivate the teens?

If you mean your students, what I do is find out what their interests are and find games, music, films, the internet, books, short stories or conversation worksheets that they are interested in. That is the greatest motivation. When you have captured their attention, later on you can try themes and subjects you think are important.

Most teens are interested in:
how they look,
if they fit in,
 being popular,
love and relationships,
good friends,
Identities, Film and music stars,
clothes, you know the stuff, you were a teen too, once!
There are lots of good reading ws here.  Just write a subject above in the box and see what you can find.
