Summary "What does it take to motivate the 'forgotten' student that traditional methods just don't seem to reach? Educator Richard Lavoie draws on decades of teaching experience to demonstrate six basic motivational styles and strategies for inspiring the most withdrawn and reluctant student. In this lively workshop presentation for parents and teachers, based on his recent book The Motivation Breakthrough: Six Secrets to Turning on the Tuned-Out Child, Lavoie touches all the bases. He explains how to tap into an apathetic or learning-disabled student's secret need for prestige, power, praise, or reward"--Container.
