Reflection

"This is a rare find, a book that manages to turn educational theory into accessible practice. It will appeal to teachers, managers, support staff and anyone interested in how we learn...This is a book relevant to everyone involved in education as it gets right to the heart of what makes us achieve: motivation. An empowering read - don't miss it!"
- Support for Learning

"As the title suggests, motivation is a key theme, and this is explored with reference to theoretical perspectives on learning and how these can be translated into practice. A real strength of the book lies in its emphasis on the importance of managing learning and developing effective whole-school approaches to improving the motivation of pupils."
