9780878225606: Enhancing Academic Motivation: An Intervention Program for Young Adolescents (Book and CD)

This powerful approach is targeted for working with students in grades 5-8 and can be adapted for use with younger students as well. It is based on research that focuses on the relationship between school failure and the lack of academic motivation. The program employs a structured intervention format divided into 16 sessions. Although designed for classroom use, the sessions can easily be adapted for small groups or individuals in mental health settings. Storytelling, role playing, and homework assignments are key elements of the program. Students become more willing to approach learning tasks and to display a higher level of engagement, effort, and persistence even when experiencing frustration or anxiety. The manual includes reproducible worksheets, program forms, and a parent component.
