Rural Teachers' Best Motivating Strategies: A Blending of Teachers' and Students' Perspectives
Hardre, Patricia L.; Sullivan, David W.; Roberts, Natasha
Rural Educator, v30 n1 p19-31 Fall 2008
This paper extracts and elaborates rural secondary teachers' most effective reported motivating strategies. From the data generated by two years of mixed method research in rural secondary schools, these strategies emerged as among the most successful. Selection of best practices was based on a synthesis of what both teachers and students reported as making the greatest positive impact on their school-related motivation. Strategies are illustrated by multiple detailed examples from teacher interviews. (Contains 1 table and 1 figure.)
