If you have ever wished more of your students behaved better and achieved more, you may be interested in a book study group I am facilitating. Based on my ASCD book "The Motivated Student," this group will look at how we can more effectively engage and inspire our students. Academic success correlates with improved behavior so our discussion aligns nicely with this group. The group begins April 15. It's free and will be on the ASCD EDge website. To learn more, please visit: http://edge.ascd.org/_The-Motivated-Student/BLOG/2273392/127586.html If you have any questions, please contact me. My goal is to gather as many educators as possible from around the world (literally) to share strategies designed to increase achievement and minimize disruption. I hope to connect with you!
