Eye on Education
"Motivating Every Student in Literacy (Including the Highly Unmotivated!), Grades 3-6" provides an effective model for improving reading levels and increasing motivation. Under the guidance of Athans and Devine, classroom leaders develop their own Motivation Improvement Action Plans, where small-group instruction, end-of-unit assessments, and other practical approaches work to increase individual student effort. Woven throughout are process-driven and novelty strategies to address possible reasons for a child's lack of motivation. Found in this guide are: (1) Illuminating case studies; (2) Quick-reference chapter summaries; (3) Reproducible Student Plans and Contracts; and (4) Action Plan Tips. Contents include: (1) Why Motivation and Literacy?; (2) Our Research Findings on Motivation; (3) Delving into Our Students' Habits; (4) Integrated Ways to Boost Reading; (5) Motivation Improvement: Quick-Fix and Gotcha Strategies; (6) Pervasive Problems; (7) Frequently Asked Questions. Appended are: (1) Case Study Outcomes: How We Motivated These Students; and (2) Motivation Tools. The book also contains a list of references.
