Product Description

This book offers teachers and youth workers strategies to engage and motivate youth in classroom and group settings. It explores reasons behind a lack of motivation, such as learning disabilities, family and environmental factors, or the need for learning approaches that match a student’s academic style, and provides inventories and exercises to help teachers identify those reasons and tailor learning activities accordingly. The book also provides exercises and handouts designed to foster self-esteem and a love of learning, and to create a positive parent-teacher-student relationship that will encourage learning in and out of the classroom.
Handouts include:

    • A multiple intelligences inventory
    • Learning profiles
    • Strategies for parent-teacher meetings
    • Worksheets for teachers and parents to keep track of progress
    • Best-practice tips
