Bringing motivation and inspiration
to the classroom is not an easy task. Motivating
and Inspiring Students
outlines a framework, based on a six-level hierarchy
of student needs and goals, that F-12 teachers can use to impart invigorating
instruction. This book builds on the themes of Awaken the Learner, which asserts F-12 schools’ extreme focus on
knowledge and skill acquisition is detrimental to students’ growth. The authors
share comprehensive understandings of the nature of motivation and inspiration
and detail strategies to connect with students at each level of the student
needs hierarchy. Readers will:

  • Consider scenarios that
    portray how the book's suggestions might play out in the classroom

  • Review mindsets,
    dispositions and behaviours that result in negative, unhelpful thinking and in
    positive, productive thinking

  • Use the Awaken the
    Learner Snapshot Student Survey to assess students' levels of engagement,
    attention, motivation and inspiration in school
