When I posted about my upcoming new book yesterday, it went out on RSS Readers before I had completed it and added this description from the publisher. I’ve added it to that post since that time, but wanted to make sure all my blog’s readers saw it:
Give your students the tools they need to motivate themselves with tips from award-winning educator Larry Ferlazzo. A comprehensive outline of common classroom challenges, this book presents research-based and immediately applicable steps and lesson plans for all middle and high school teachers looking to help their students motivate themselves. With coverage of brain-based learning, classroom management, and using technology, these strategies can be easily incorporated into any curriculum.
Learn to implement solutions to the following challenges:
-How do I motivate students?
-How do I help students see the importance of personal responsibility?
-How do I deal with a student who is being disruptive in class?
-How do I regain control of an out-of-control class?
Blogger and educator Larry Ferlazzo has worked to combine literacy development with short and rigorous classroom lessons on topics such as self-control, personal responsibility, brain growth, and perseverance. He uses many “on-the-spot” interventions designed to engage students and connect with their personal interests.
Use these practical, research-based ideas to help your students become intrinsically motivated to learn!
sounds great, Larry, very timely. after all, ifvwe expect students to take charge of their learning, it follows that they should also know how to be self-motivating.
