Powerful Classroom Management Strategies: Motivating Students to Learn.
Burden, Paul R.
This book describes how to use effective motivation in the classroom in order to increase student learning and decrease classroom management problems for K-12 classrooms. This book bridges the gap between theory and practice with useful applications of motivation theory. It enables teachers to determine the type of motivation their students need and provides tools to respond to their needs. Highlights include specific strategies for motivating students (including hard-to-reach students), case studies and vignettes, suggested activities for another day, reflective chapter-end questions, and Web sites for additional resources. The seven chapters are: (1) "The Complex Nature of Motivation"; (2) "Motivating Students to Learn"; (3) "A Framework for Motivating Students"; (4)"Motivational Strategies Concerning Instruction"; (5) "Motivational Strategies Concerning Evaluation and Recognition"; (6) "Academic and Behavioral Expectations"; and (7) "Motivating Hard-to-Reach Students." (Contains 96 references.) (SM)
