Motivating Minds: Nurturing Your Child's Desire To Learn.
Stipek, Deborah; Seal, Kathy
Our Children, v27 n5 p7-8 Mar 2002
While research shows that children's love of learning declines steadily from grades 3-9, this article explains how to motivate students by meaningfully connecting school to the real world, focusing on connecting science to the natural word, social studies to current events, literature to real-life experiences, and math applications to daily life. The article describes how to bring learning alive by enriching school experiences (e.g., real and virtual field trips). (SM)
