The Motivation Breakthrough: 6 Secrets to Turning on the Tuned-Out Child

As we all know, motivation is one of the main keys to learning. In this book, well known educator and author Richard Lavoie talks about how there isn’t a ‘one size fits all’ when it comes to motivating children to learn.

I found this book to be a good read as Lavoie discusses the different motivational styles and the book is filled with techniques and strategies that can be used to encourage children to learn. He also addresses and offers suggestions to help motivate children with learning difficulties.

The Motivation Breakthrough is insightful, thought provoking, practical and filled with examples, which I think would be very useful for both parents and teachers who are trying to break through a child’s discouragement and inspire them to succeed.
