A great support for student and early career teachers but also those teachers wishing to re-explore and re-ignite their perspectives on teaching and learning or perhaps those struggling to 'get to grips' with their class.

This is an accessible book which makes clear links between motivation and how ideas about this concept might link to educational settings. The chapter guides and reflection points at the beginning of each chapter are really helpful in focusing student attention.
