Motivation is foundational to learning

This book’s bold new vision for professional learning emphasizes the importance of intrinsic motivation and respect for cultural diversity to create a transformative approach to school improvement. Knowing that culture and motivation are inseparable influences on learning, Margery B. Ginsberg provides practical steps that focus on teaching and learning grounded in the reality of children’s lives. Because motivated teachers tend to have motivated students, Ginsberg’s professional development program creates the same motivational conditions for adult learning that work well for students. The book’s processes include

  • Shadowing students to help sharpen teachers’ understanding of student motivation.
  • Conducting home visits to better connect with students’ lives and families
  • Collaborating with other teachers to design lessons
  • Analyzing data in collaboration with students, families, and community members

Included are an abundance of field-tested tools, templates, and protocols. Teachers and administrators will find an experienced voice of reason to guide them through today’s maze of increasing demands as they work toward the ultimate goal of engaging all students.
