Activating the Desire to Learn
Sullo, Bob
Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development
Wouldn't your job be easier if students were just more interested in learning? Now, here's a book that will open your eyes to where the desire to learn actually comes from and what teachers can really do to activate it. Using stories from classroom teachers, counselors, administrators, and students, Bob Sullo explains why the desire to learn is based on five personal needs. Find out why schools that base programs and practices on meeting these personal needs have fewer disruptions and more students who are improving academically. And explore the principles and guidelines you need to know to change the dynamics of learning in your classroom or school: (1) A comprehensive overview of the research on internal motivation; (2) Strategies for activating internal motivation at the elementary, middle, and high school levels; (3) Suggestions on how to assess degrees of student motivation; and (4) Guidelines for integrating the principles of internal motivation with standards-based instruction.
