Have you ever been frustrated by your attempts to motivate kids with rewards and punishment? Do you wish kids were more motivated to learn rather than working for tickets to the school store? If so, you may be interested in a book study group I am facilitating based on my ASCD book "The Motivated Student: Unlocking the Enthusiasm for Learning." It starts in 2 weeks and is free. For details, visit: http://edge.ascd.org/_The-Motivated-Student/BLOG/2273392/127586.html My goal is to gather as many educators as possible from around the world (literally) and discuss how to engage and inspire kids to value learning and succeed academically. If you're interested in student motivation, I hope you'll join me and be part of this exciting conversation!
