When the first edition of Diversity and Motivation was publishedin 1995, it became a premier resource for faculty andadministrators seeking effective and practical strategies thatfoster motivation among culturally diverse student groups.

This revised and updated second edition of Diversity andMotivation offers a comprehensive understanding of teaching methodsthat promote respect, relevance, engagement, and academic success.Margery B. Ginsberg and Raymond J. Wlodkowski base their insightsand concrete suggestions on their experiences and research ascollege faculty.

The book defines norms, illustrates practices, and providestools to develop four foundational conditions for intrinsicallymotivated learning: establishing inclusion, developing a positiveattitude, enhancing meaning, and engendering competence. Theauthors provide perspectives on the social justice implications ofeach condition.
