Description

Jessica Lahey, NY Times Bestselling Author will discuss her book the Gift of Failure.

USM Virginia Henes Young Theatre

What's the best way to motivate students to own their education and develop resilience? Research has shown that the key to all these things is intrinsic motivation, or motivation that comes from within. Jessica summarizes the current research on autonomy-supportive parenting and teaching, competence, rewards, desirable difficulties, praise, and failure.

Jessica offers practical advice for fostering intrinsic motivation and weaning kids off of extrinsic motivators such as short-term rewards, bribes, honors, coercion, and yes, even grades, while giving kids the support and encouragement they need in order to succeed.
