Jessica Lahey Author Talk and Book Signing- The Gift of Failure

What's the best way to motivate students to take ownership of their education, help them learn deeply and durably, and develop emotional and intellectual resilience? The key lies with intrinsic motivation that comes from within. Lahey describes how teachers, parents, and coaches can help kids discover intrinsic motivation by fostering autonomy, competence, relationships, and personal relevance. She summarizes the current research on extrinsic and intrinsic motivators, praise, and learned helplessness, while detailing the instruction, assessment, and evaluation methods that result in deep, durable learning. Finally, she reveals how parents and educators can give students the support and encouragement they need in order to stay motivated over the long term.
