Motivating Middle School Students to Learn.
Hootstein, Edward W.
Middle School Journal, v25 n5 p31-34 May 1994
Describes motivational strategies that middle-school teachers can employ to prevent boredom and stimulate interest. Teachers should relate learning tasks to students' needs, interests, concerns, and experiences; clarify, share, and model the intended value of learning; encourage students to pursue their own interests; stimulate students' curiosity; create informational discrepancies; ask thought-provoking questions; and make abstract content more concrete.
