Next February, this blog will be celebrating its ten-year anniversary! Leading up to it, I’m re-starting a series I tried to do in the past called “A Look Back.” Each week, I’ll be re-posting a few of my favorite posts from the past ten years.

In 2011, I published my third book, Helping Students Motivate Themselves.

You can find a ton of excerpts, along with many other free resources here.  Those free resources include being able to download all student hand-outs from the book, and there are a lot of them.

This book turned out to be the first of a “student motivation trilogy,” and has been followed by Self-Driven Learning and Building A Community Of Self-Motivated Learners.

And, even though it’s going to have to wait until after I finish my next book on teaching English Language Learners, a fourth book in the series is in the pipeline!
