Book Description from Amazon: "When the first edition of Diversity and Motivation was published in 1995, it became
a premier resource for faculty and administrators seeking effective and practical
strategies that foster motivation among culturally diverse student groups.
This revised and updated second edition of Diversity and Motivation offers a comprehensive
understanding of teaching methods that promote respect, relevance, engagement, and
academic success. Margery B. Ginsberg and Raymond J. Wlodkowski base their insights
and concrete suggestions on their experiences and research as college faculty.
The book defines norms, illustrates practices, and provides tools to develop four
foundational conditions for intrinsically motivated learning: establishing inclusion,
developing a positive attitude, enhancing meaning, and engendering competence. The
authors provide perspectives on the social justice implications of each condition.
Diversity and Motivation includes resources to help educators create a supportive
community of learners, facilitate equitable discussions in linguistically diverse
classrooms, design engaging lessons, and assess students fairly. The ideas in this
book apply across disciplines and include teaching practices that can be easily adapted
to a range of postsecondary settings.
In addition, the authors include a cohesive approach to syllabus construction, lesson
design, and faculty development. This new edition also contains a framework for motivating
students outside traditional classroom settings."
