Motivation is the key to learning. But very few parents and teachers have an effective arsenal of techniques at their disposal. With empathy and understanding, backed by decades of experience in the classroom, Rick Lavoie gives parents and teachers the key to unlock any child's enthusiasm and responsiveness. The Motivation Breakthrough will revolutionize the way parents, teachers, and professionals reach out to and motivate all children.

5.0 out of 5 stars Motivational tool May 18, 2008

This DVD is an excellent resource and companion piece to the book by the same name. It would serve as a wonderful professional development study for any school's faculty to motivate teachers to keep students' interests in mind when designing a lesson.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great advice and insight on motivation February 23, 2009
Verified Purchase
My wife and I bought this for ourselves in order to learn how to better motivate our children. Excellent insight. We even learned how to better motivate each other. If you have a child that is struggling in school, this video is for you. It is more expensive than an enertaining movie, but the value received lasts a lifetime.

4.0 out of 5 stars Special Ed and ESL November 27, 2009
Verified Purchase
This tape, which features an in-depth discussion of Maslow's hierarchy of needs, is a practical resource for teachers. Mr. Lavoie makes it clear that there is no "one size fits all" when teaching. His analogies help teachers apply psychology learned in the university in their classroom. I would recommend this tape for both the novice and expert teacher.

I had a little sticker shock when I saw the price for the DVD, but considering I KNEW I would never finish the book, I thought this would be more valuable. I was not disappointed by my friends' recommendation. Lavoie does a great job walking through child psychology and why he approaches children the way he does, and why we approach them wrong. I've utilized some of knowledge he shared, and I need to watch it a couple more times to improve. PS -- works on adults too!
