As your students take on greater responsibility at school
and at work, their ability to effectively motivate others will be essential to
their success as a leader. In this LAP students will discover the importance of
motivation, learn how to identify common motivators within their teammates, and
master proven techniques for boosting motivation among diverse teams of people.
They will gain an in-depth understanding of human motivation by exploring
Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs, an influential theory that helps explain how and
why people are motivated. In the Gray Zone, students will consider a situation
in which a team leader is struggling to motivate two of his group mates for a
school project – a situation that many of your students may find familiar.
LAPs are comprehensive instructional packages that include all elements of a performance-oriented lesson plan. This LAP includes a student handout (with CopyIT! permission) that includes information about motivating others, a (So What?) discussion of why it's important to learn, and a short (Gray Zone) case addressing ethical issues. The instructor section features a comprehensive discussion guide, complete practice- (short answer) and post-tests (multiple-choice) with descriptive keys, student activities, and more.
As an added bonus, instructors will receive a second version of the student guide—in color and designed specifically for use on electronic devices. This additional student guide is easier for instructors to share with students via email, shared drive, or learning management system and easier for students to view and read electronically.

Bring your discussions to life with our PowerPoint presentation featuring a broad range of graphics and special effects to help keep students interested. This professionally produced presentation consists of 35 slides.
"Very thought provoking activities that go well beyond basic depth of knowledge. Thank you for providing more problem-solving and real-world scenarios."
