Spark students' motivation to learn and succeed beyond the formal years of schooling!
Every student enrolled in school can learn; however, the capacity for learning varies among students. As a result of a two-decade-long interest, author Margaret A. Theobald provides teachers with ideas and insights that can help support and motivate middle and high school students to do their best work. This unique book, which defines motivation, contains basic theories and a wealth of useful practical procedures. Easy to pick up, its simple approach and format will help school leaders apply and modify motivational strategies for all students while recognizing that each student is unique.
Written, developed, designed, and presented to teachers and school leaders for immediate application, this handbook provides:
- General frameworks for thinking about motivation
- Hundreds of strategies from middle and high school educators who have succeeded in motivating students to learn
- A deeper understanding of the needs of students as those needs relate to students' motivational levels
Increasing Student Motivation fills an important niche in professional educational literature and will prove to be an invaluable resource for all educators who work with students and are concerned about how to help them maximize their potential.
