"It's not easy to write a book that is simultaneously brief, packed with ideas, and clear, but Peps has done it." Daniel Willingham, Professor of Psychology at the University of Virginia

This book is for teachers and school leaders interested in understanding what motivation for learning is, how it works, and how to build it in the classroom.

From the author of Memorable Teaching, this latest instalment in the High Impact Teaching series stitches together the best available evidence from multiple fields -- including behavioural economics, evolutionary psychology and motivation science -- to create a concise, coherent and actionable framework that you can use to help your pupils care more about and put more effort into your lessons.

Motivated Teaching has been carefully constructed to be a highly efficient reading experience. It is short, sparse and you should be able to read it in about an hour.

1. Secure success2. Run routines3. Nudge norms4. Build belonging5. Boost buy-in
