Editorial Reviews

Review

"I am an elementary school principal  and curriculum director for a district of about 1840 students. At the beginning of the year staff meeting I shared the story "What does a teacher make?" from Motivation from A to Z. I also shared with my son who will be a sophomore at the University of Iowa the chart of Amateur vs. Pro Learners. He recognized that he was an amateur the beginning of last school and by the end of the school year he had become more of a professional learner (learned survival skills). I love your book!! Thanks for your help."
--Sue Ruch, Principal, Adams Elementary School 

From the Author

Classroom Motivation from A to Z was my first book.  It was written based on my teaching experiences, especially my students who were at-risk.  I ended up writing so much, we had to cut 40 pages, which became the basis for my second book, Classroom Instruction from A to Z.  

More About the Author

Barbara has dedicated her life to raising the level of rigor and motivation for professional educators and students alike. What differentiates Barbara's fourteen books are her easily executable concrete examples based on decades of experience as a teacher, professor, and consultant. Barbara's dedication to education was inspired in her early years by her parents. Her father's doctorate and life-time career as a professor taught her the importance of professional training. Her mother's career as school secretary shaped Barbara's appreciation of the effort all staff play in the education of every child.

Barbara has taught early childhood, elementary, middle, and high school students and has served as an educational consultant for three publishing companies. She holds a master's degree in school administration and is certified as both a teacher and a school principal in North Carolina. She received her Ph.D. from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. In 2006, she received the award for Outstanding Junior Professor at Winthrop University. She recently left her position at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte to write and speak full-time.

In addition to speaking at state and national conferences, she also regularly presents workshops for teachers and administrators in elementary, middle, and high schools. Her workshops are lively and engaging and filled with practical information. Her most popular topics include:

Rigor is NOT a Four Letter Word

Format: Paperback
Barbara Blackburn obviously knows what it's like to be a classroom teacher. Every one of the chapters - from A to Z - is loaded with practical guidelines for engaging students in meaningful learning experiences. Classroom Motivation from A to Z is a perfect tool for professional development for teachers of all levels. Principals would be wise to put a copy in the hands of every teacher in their school. It will spark conversation and lead to more motivated students - and teachers!

I teach classroom management classes at a local university . This was a required resource and I do recommend it for classroom use and for parents as well.

It is a quick read and ideas are practical and common sense.

This book was well written and will offer something for anyone that works with students/children.
