Ever wish your students were more motivated? If you’re like most of us, you have tried an array of rewards and punishments to motivate kids. There’s only one problem: it doesn’t work. At least it doesn't work well enough. People (yes, even students) aren’t motivated from the outside so rewards and punishments only work to a point. We are internally motivated. That’s why it's essential to engage and inspire students to be motivated to succeed in school (and life.)

If you’re ready to move beyond the reward/punishment model and embrace a whole new way to understand motivation, I encourage you to come back regularly. It’s time to challenge the status quo and create schools and classrooms based on what really motivates behavior.

Friday, May 28, 2010 newsletter

Putting the final touches on the June newsletter. I hope to have it completed within a few days. It will include articles about

1.Paying students for good grades;

2. What research says about spanking children (and a suggested alternative to “time out”);

3. The importance of creativity in business leadership;

4. Learning opportunities related to internal control psychology;

5. More!

To be put on the mailing list for this FREE newsletter, simply send me an e-mail with your first and last name requesting to be added to the mailing list. Be certain to put “newsletter mailing list” in the subject line of your newsletter so I can find it if your e-mail somehow finds it way into my “spam” folder. I’ll send the newsletter to you and you can print, copy, and share with everyone interested in internal motivation.

Note: I will not share your contact information!
