101 creative, fun, and tested ways to help raise student achievement!
Students tend to respond academically when they believe their teachers and administrators are taking a positive personal interest in their education. Many principals and educators often employ motivational stunts as rewards and as learning tools for their K-8 students as one sure way of motivating academic achievement. Frank Sennett's user-friendly book outlines 101 motivational stunts educators can use to creatively inspire and motivate students to higher academic achievement. He lists scores of ideas that are easy to replicate, and accompanies them with successful case studies from across the country.
After describing each motivational stunt the author offers:
- Suggestions for related cross-curricular activities
- Tips for avoiding problems
- Additional resources worth exploring
- References to complementary stunts to mix and match for students' delight
- A silliness rating of 1-5 for each stunt to help each educator with their personality and "comfort level" of performing in public
