Review

"This book is a wonderful resource for both beginning and experienced teachers!" (Art Dickinson, High School Physical Education Teacher)

"In our current era of test savvy students, we all need multiple ways to confront the increase in motivation required to have all students achieve their highest levels. Dr. Theobald has provided an important and readable resource for beginning and experienced teachers." (David Waters, Principal)

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback
Increasing Student Motivation: Strategies For Middle And High School Teachers is a collection of tips, tricks, techniques and advice to motivate their students to be the best they can be. Each suggestion is followed by a paragraph or two of elaboration. Suggestions range from "Write extensive comments on student work to explain a grade or their progress" and "Give examples of your personal work... like a poem of your own" to "Let students choose their own topics for research" and "Make time to have a class discussion on objects that are personal and important to students." The suggestions are divided into general categories: motivation influenced through observation, timing, independence, victory, action, transfer, individuality, ownership, and more. A handful of appendix-like resources, such as a "positive word list", round out this inspirational compendium of ideas, highly recommended for public and private educators alike.
