It’s a ways away, but I wanted readers to know that Education Week will be hosting an online chat with me on April 12th. I’ll post more details as the time grows closer.
It’s titled “Helping Students Motivate Themselves” and will take place on Tuesday, April 12, 2011, 2 p.m. Eastern time. It’s connected to the publication of my new book (it should be out by April 15th) titled Helping Students Motivate Themselves: Practical Answers To Classroom Challenges.
Here’s the long and shorter description of the Chat:
Larry Ferlazzo will talk about techniques he uses in his classroom to help students to motivate themselves to learn. He draws from his longtime career as a community organizer to help students set and meet goals for themselves in learning and classroom behavior. He combines literacy development with short and rigorous academic lessons on topics such as self-control, personal responsibility, brain growth, and perseverance, and uses many “on-the-spot” interventions — all designed to engage students and connect to their self-interests.
Larry Ferlazzo will talk about techniques he uses in his classroom to help students to motivate themselves to learn, which is the subject of a new book he’s written set to be published this spring.
