Diversity and Motivation: Culturally Responsive Teaching in College Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Synopsis:

Praise for the Second Edition of Diversity and Motivation

"Since the first publication of Diversity and Motivation in 1995, we have consistently used this text and its philosophy in our faculty development at Valencia Community College. I am delighted to see that this new edition focuses on college teaching. Ginsberg and Wlodkowski's approach to the diverse challenges of student motivation is authentic and transforming, and faculty respond!"

—Ann E. Puyana, assistant vice president for academic affairs, Valencia Community College

"There is a great need for deeper understanding and conceptualization of student motivation across diverse groups to change the consciousness of educators and, ultimately, society. For those of us who teach, and face that need daily, this work illuminates and inspires."

—Ed Taylor, vice provost and dean, Undergraduate Academic Affairs, University of Washington?

"No one knows more about creating intrinsically motivating classroom environments in diverse settings than Margery Ginsberg and Raymond Wlodkowski. Every educator who wants to engage students fully for success should read this book!"

—Beverly Daniel Tatum, president, Spelman College
