Written specifically for teachers, Motivating Students to Learn offers a wealth of research-based principles on the subject of student motivation for use by classroom teachers. Now in its fourth edition, this book discusses specific classroom strategies by tying these principles to the realities of contemporary schools, curriculum goals, and classroom dynamics. The authors lay out effective extrinsic and intrinsic strategies to guide teachers in their day-to-day practice, provide guidelines for adapting to group and individual differences, and discuss ways to reach students who have become discouraged or disaffected learners. This edition features new material on the roles that classroom goal setting, developing students' interest, and teacher-student and peer relationships play in student motivation. It has been reorganized to address six key questions that combine to explain why students may or may not be motivated to learn. By focusing more closely on the teacher as the motivator, this text presents a wide range of motivational methods to help students see value in the curriculum and lessons taught in the classroom.

    Hi, thanks for the valuable info. Where does programs like SmugMug, WordPress, Photo Shelter etc. come in? Why are they not compared with these ones?

    I haven't used Kajabi before, but I've heard about it. It's built specifically for delivering online content / classes. So having said that, if that's what you want to do (to sell online courses / classes, and collect tuition fees), then perhaps they will have more relevant / targeted tools for you.
