This blog has gained many new readers over the past year. Because of that, I thought it might be worth sharing a daily “A Look Back” where I share a best post from the past twelve years. You can also see all of my choices for “Best” posts here.

I originally published this post in 2015.

In 2015, Routledge published the third book in my student motivation series, Building A Community Of Self-Motivated Learners: Strategies To Help Students Thrive In School and Beyond. [look for a fourth volume in the next year-or-two]

Edutopia published a short book excerpt that they headlined Strategies for Helping Students Motivate Themselves, and it’s been shared well over forty thousand times so far.

I’ve previously shared this video, but thought I’d include it here again since it’s basically a modified version of that excerpt [you can see more videos on my video page].

By the way, though it’s substantially different,  ASCD Educational Leadership published a lengthy piece by me applying these same principals to “personalized learning” – Student Engagement: Key to Personalized Learning.
