"What You Need to Know about Motivation and Teaching Games: An in-depth analysis" is essential for anyone working with learners with social delays, including learners with Autism. This book dedicates significant attention to learner motivation, the ability of teachers to establish learner motivation, and, most importantly, the ability of teachers to identify whether their learners are interested. This book describes the philosophical underpinnings of various methods for teaching learners to enjoy playing games, and does so in a way that creates thoughtful, creative teachers. Further, this book provides scripts for teaching 12 specific games. For each game, the author describes: why the game is valuable, prerequisites, a basic instructional protocol, finer points, variations, and data. An emphasis is placed, throughout this book, on teacher responsiveness to student performance. Teachers will learn how to help their students actually enjoy playing games.
