AVID Workshop: Student Motivation, Part 1
June 1, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Motivation matters; it is a precursor to student engagement. Frequently, educators lament about “how to motivate students to care about their learning.” While the literature is overrun with deficit thinking about students, their families, culture, socioeconomic background, and communities, this professional learning module provides a foundation for educators to reflect about how deficit thinking often permeates how we think about students and offers alternative practices in order to create positive learning environments. Grounded in culturally responsive pedagogy, this module assists participants to develop a deeper understanding of the relationship between culture and the motivation to learn through diverse counter beliefs and values that students and educators bring to a learning environment.
Part 1 shares Ginsberg’s and Wlodkowski’s Framework for Student Motivation which includes: 1) establishing inclusion; 2) developing attitude; 3) enhancing meaning; and 4) engendering competence. Part one also offers tools for educators in how to facilitate equitable discussions in a multicultural environment.
