Cindy,

Raymond Wlodkowksi's book Enhancing Adult Motivation to Learn (1999 Revised
Edition), Jossey-Bass, would be the premier source. It is practical, easy to
read, and filled with examples. It contains 60 motivational strategies
within an overall framework.

Also John Keller's ARCS model is widely used. For ARCS, take a look at
http://www.e-learningguru.com/articles/art3_5.htm 
http://ide.ed.psu.edu/idde/ARCS.htm 

Both Wlodkowski and Keller have short articles in Michael Theall's
Motivation from Within: Approaches for Encouraging Faculty and Students to
Excel which is No. 78, Summer 1999 in the Jossey-Bass New Directions for
Teaching and Learning series.

Subject: Student Effort and Motivation

I am seeking practical, realistic articles, ideas, or methods that community
college faculty may use to address the issues of  student effort and
motivation.  I know that there are no simple answers to these complex
issues, but I hope to find  ideas that others have found useful for the
faculty at-large.  Thank you!
