Author Carolyn Coil has worked with teachers and parents for many years and during this time she has heard the same question over and over again. How do you motivate underachieving students? There is no one answer, but multiple answers and strategies. Self-esteem, study skills, motivation, parent/teacher collaboration, and so on, all play a role in solving the puzzle of underachievement. The purpose of this book is to share answers to this difficult question by presenting a multitude of strategies that work with underachievers. Not all strategies will work with all students. The intention is that the reader picks the ones, out of the list of 220, that look as if they will be workable with an individual student in a given situation.
