About This Book
We can all remember how great we felt when our favorite teacher praised us for a job well done or a good instructor encouraged us during a tough assignment. We were eager to go the extra mile for these teachers because we knew they believed in us and supported our success. In Inviting Students to Learn, Jenny Edwards shows us how to re-create that same enthusiasm with our own students by choosing our words carefully and creating learning environments that motivate students to be eager to learn and ready to succeed.
Edwards provides 100 practical tips for making subtle yet powerful changes in our conversations with students—from how we ask students to do something as simple as turning in their homework on time to how we inspire them to set big goals for the entire school year. Edwards provides suggestions that will help us
Inviting Students to Learn also contains tips for interacting with parents, reaching out to diverse student groups, and using technology to efficiently communicate with students.
Edwards shows us that as we begin to shift our everyday conversations with students, we can boost their self-esteem, improve their knowledge, and increase their desire and willingness to work successfully toward their goals.
