  • "Like other books in this innovative series, Focus on Reading links research and practice... I enjoyed learning about the characteristics of online reading and 'assistive technologies', and the transition between 'learning to read' and 'reading to learn'. The 10-page glossary is helpful. Fascinating."

  • "Motivational Teaching is a timely publication... devoted to both creating and maintaining what it takes to keep eager students of English interested and focused."
    - EL Gazette
  • "Motivational Teaching offers a wealth of tips and ideas for increasing motivation in the language classroom... It's clear that the author is knowledgeable on the subject of motivation, and is skilled at developing fun, enjoyable activities that teachers will find useful."
    - English Teaching Professional
  • "Organised as a 'recipe book' of advice, activities and judiciously selected research snapshots, Motivational Teaching shows teachers exactly how they can motivate students... "Research," Thorner reminds us, "consistently emphasises that there is nothing more likely to increase student motivation than a teacher who shows passion for what they do."... Thorner's emphasis on the how and why of teaching (rather than just the what) nurtures that passion."
