I thought that new – and veteran – readers might find it interesting if I began sharing my best posts from over the years. You can see the entire collection here.

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.

Edutopia published a short book excerpt that they headlined Strategies for Helping Students Motivate Themselves, and it’s been shared nearly 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.

By the way, though it’s substantially different, the March issue of ASCD Educational Leadership will include a lengthy piece by me applying these same principals to “personalized learning.” (which you can now see here).
