The Motivation Breakthrough: Secrets to Turning On the Tuned-Out Child. Richard Lavoie, DVD $52.95 (90 minutes)

Motivation is the key to learning. But very few parents and teachers have an effective arsenal of techniques at their disposal. Acclaimed author Rick Lavoie arms all those who deal with children with proven, effective tools and strategies they can use to encourage any child to learn and achieve success. Lavoie explores motivational styles, presenting proven techniques, strategies, and scripts that can be used in the classroom and at home to break through a child's apathy and discouragement and inspire him/her to succeed and achieve. Along the way, Lavoie explodes some common myths about motivation: for instance, he demonstrates that rewards, punishment, and competition are not effective motivational tools. He gives specific advice throughout for parents and teachers of children with learning disabilities and provides detailed instructions for how to create a motivated classroom.
