Motivating Primary-Grade Students.
Pressley, Michael; Dolezal, Sara E.; Raphael, Lisa M.; Mohan, Lindsey; Roehrig, Alysia D.; Bogner, Kristen
Noting that few would dispute the essential role of motivation in promoting academic engagement and achievement, this book serves as a guide to motivating students in grades K-3. The book presents research-based strategies and techniques that are then illustrated in three extended case studies of highly successful motivators, demonstrating how these exemplary teachers instill motivation in their classrooms. The book provides practical ideas readers can implement in their own classrooms, as well as guiding teachers in recognizing and avoiding key pitfalls--the attitudes, instructional methods, and classroom management approaches that may inadvertently undermine student motivation. Appended is a summary of what primary-grade teachers can do to "flood" their classrooms with motivating instruction. (Contains 294 references.) (HTH)
