Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1979, Vol 24(5), 432. Reviews the book, Motivation: Understanding and Influencing Human Behavior by Walter B. Kolesnik (1978). This book includes brief, often simplistic overviews of many different learning and developmental theories designed, according to the author, for readers with no background in psychology. The text provides answers to questions important to preparing or novice teachers, classroom applications that too frequently are omitted in educational psychology texts: how to teach creativity, how to choose a grading method, and how to use classroom competition.
