100 tips for talking effectively with your students


Jenny Edwards

We can all remember how great we felt when our favorite teacher praised us for a job well done or a good instructor encouraged us during a tough assignment. We were eager to go the extra mile for these teachers because we knew they believed in us and supported our success. In Inviting Students to Learn, Jenny Edwards shows us how to re-create that same enthusiasm with our own students by choosing our words carefully and creating learning environments that motivate students to be eager to learn and ready to succeed.
Edwards provides 100 practical tips for making subtle yet powerful changes in our conversations with students from how we ask students to do something as simple as turning in their homework on time to how we inspire them to set big goals for the entire school year.
