The challenge of motivating underachieving students is addressed in this classroom resource guide that advises teachers and other concerned adults to look beyond test scores and encourage under-performing middle school and high school students to find their motivational spark. Developmental benchmarks, reasonable expectations for results, and strategies for charting progress are discussed for a myriad of situations—including those with learning disabilities, family and environmental factors, different learning styles, and other root causes of motivational deficit—and paired with classroom strategies to address each unique case. A learning styles inventory and a multiple intelligence test are provided to aid in evaluation, and handouts and home strategies to share with parents are offered to reinforce the home-school connection.
