MOTIVATION

Motivation is at the center of all professional development work at the AIM Center. The Motivational Framework for Culturally Responsive Teaching (© Ginsberg) undergirds the professional development initiatives and has become a shared language across the Cleveland campus.


The Framework names the following four motivational conditions that teachers and students continuously create or enhance:

1. Establishing inclusion-
creating a learning atmosphere in which students and teachers feel respected by and connected to one another

2. Developing a positive attitude- creating a favorable disposition toward the learning experience through relevance and choice

3.Enhancing meaning- creating challenging, thoughtful learning experiences that include student perspectives and values

4. Engendering Competence- creating an understanding that students are effective in learning something they value
