Fires in the Mind: What Kids Can Tell Us about Motivation and Mastery
Cushman, Kathleen
Jossey-Bass, An Imprint of Wiley
Through the voices of students themselves, "Fires in the Mind" brings a game-changing question to teachers of adolescents: What does it take to get really good at something? Starting with what they already know and do well, teenagers from widely diverse backgrounds join a cutting-edge dialogue with adults about the development of mastery in and out of school. Their insights frame motivation, practice, and academic challenge in a new light that galvanizes more powerful learning for all. To put these students' ideas into practice, the book also includes practical tips for educators. From the author of "Fires in the Bathroom", this is the next-step book that pushes the conversation to next level, as teenagers tackle the pressing challenges of motivation and mastery.
