Essential Readings on Motivation
Jacquelynn A. Malloy, Barbara A. Marinak, and Linda B. Gambrell, editors
Walk into a classroom of motivated learners, and you feel a special energy. Students are collaborating on projects, discussing their ideas, and sitting engrossed in reading and writing. They are on the road to powerful learning — and increased achievement.
We all want to work in classrooms of engaged learners. But how do we motivate all our students to develop their literate potentials?
With this collection, leading educators Jacquelynn Malloy, Barbara Marinak, and Linda Gambrell showcase outstanding articles designed to support teachers as they motivate students to reach new levels of literacy. They demonstrate how the often-neglected element of motivation is essential to students’ growth and participation within a learning community of literate souls.
Engagement Activities included with each article will inspire teachers’ own professional growth related to study and discussion of the readings. These activities and suggestions for further reading make the collection ideal for personal professional development or use in school-based learning communities and teacher education classrooms.
