Teachers inspired to boost student motivation after reading the book Fires in the Mind now have new support in making that happen. In a self-paced, online “Learning Path on Building Student Motivation,” author Kathleen Cushman presents six in-depth mixed-media case studies of highly motivating classroom practice—complete with commentary from learning scientists as well as from the teachers and students involved. That material forms the core of a collaborative social-learning experience where small cohorts of participants hear from Cushman, analyze curriculum and instruction through the lens of the “Motivation Equation,” and come to new insights in a discussion forum. Check out the user-friendly platform and two introductory modules here (after a quick sign-up at www.EduPlanet21.com).
