Activating the desire to learn.


Activating the desire to learn.

Sullo, Bob.

Assn/Supervision & Curric. Dev


163 pages




Consultant Sullo draws upon conversations he has conducted with students, teachers counselors and administrators to discern essential needs such as connecting, being competent, making choices, having fun and feeling safe. He finds that when these needs are filled, all those involved naturally gravitate toward good behavior and high achievement. He reviews the latest theories and research on internal motivation and shows how they apply to elementary school, where competition is as important as cooperation and students do better being led rather than bossed, to middle school, where positive relationships become so important and students begin to understand the importance of their choices, to high school, in which simple enforcement changes to teaching responsibility and creating a need-satisfying environment.
