The newest issue of ASCD’s Educational Leadership publication is now online, and its theme is Motivation Matters.
Here are three pieces that are not behind a paywall that I would highly recommend:
Rick Wormeli has a typically great article that’s titled Motivating Young Adolescents. It includes a list of “Top 12 Demotivators” that I think should be taped to every teacher’s desk.
Motivated to Learn: A Conversation with Daniel Pink can also be found in the issue, and Dan always has important thoughts to share and that are worth hearing.
Research Says / Curiosity Is Fleeting, but Teachable is an excellent piece by Bryan Goodwin.
I’m adding Bryan’s piece to The Best Posts On Curiosity.
I’m adding the others to The Best Posts & Articles On “Motivating” Students.
