The Student Motivation Handbook 50 Ways to Boost an Intrinsic Desire to Learn
Even with the highest-quality content, students who don’t have an intrinsic motivation to learn may never perform to their full potential. So how can we create the classroom conditions where that motivation can flourish? Renowned educator Larry Ferlazzo has the answers in this comprehensive new resource.
Designed as a practical handbook you can easily refer to again and again for ideas, the book offers 50 teaching practices divided into four main sections: autonomy, competency, relatedness, and relevance. Throughout, there are tip boxes with links to resources for additional support, as well as lists of questions you can ask yourself to ensure you’re implementing the strategies in a culturally responsive way.
With this book as your compass, you’ll be able to create the conditions for students to find their inner motivation, be their true selves, and thrive in school and beyond.
