Synopsis

Motivating Every Learner by Alan McLean

'Teachers everywhere should read this book: I taught for fifteen years and would have given a lot for a book like this! It not only helps you to understand children and why they do what they do, but shows you how to support them in ways that work. This is real psychology! It also encourages you to reflect on your own Teaching Style....and increase your effectiveness. Could any Teacher find a more worthwhile read? I don't think so...enjoy!' - Amazon Review Do you understand what motivates the children in your class? How can you help children to understand their own behaviour? And what effects can this have on learning? This fascinating book explores the interactions between teachers and pupils, presenting new ways of engaging young people in learning. Alan McLean's very practical approach shows teachers how to understand children's learning stances - the modes of behaviour that children bring with them to the classroom. Linking this to specific teaching methods, he shows how teachers can shape their teaching to help children learn more effectively. Chapters covers: - What makes pupils tick? - What pupils do to motivate themselves - Understanding children's emotions - What teachers can do to motivate pupils - Personality styles and how to work with them effectively - Children's learning stances

Reviews

'It is helpful at least now and then for language teachers to read a book on a key topic - such as this one - which has drawn on a substantially different literature than that which is normally consulted by writers in out field...Extremely accessible and reader friendly. Highly recommended' - The Teacher Trainer Journal

''If you want to understand what makes for a motivated (or a de-motivated) learner in comtemporary classrooms, you could not do better than read, understand and apply the insights of Motivating Every Learner' - Scottish Educational Review'
