Spark the motivation in your gifted children or students! Keep them eager and excited to learn at home and in the classroom! Gifted children are susceptible to many de-motivating factors, which can lead to depression and academic underachievement. The authors present concepts and techniques to counteract those factors, allowing children’s motivation to skyrocket.

 

The Four C’s of Motivation:

  • Creating Challenge
  • Creating Control
  • Creating Commitment
  • Creating Compassion

The book includes additional resources, books, and websites for parents and teachers, as well as a foreword by Dr. Joanne Rand Whitmore Schwartz, former Dean of the College of Education, Kent State University, and author of the classic book Giftedness, Conflict and Underachievement.
