A System of Individually Guided Motivation. Practical Paper Number 9.
Klausmeier, Herbert J.; And Others
The purpose of this paper is to describe a system of individually guided motivation which is directly tied to a total system of individually guided education. In the system of motivation, the child's entering characteristics are assessed, motivational objectives in the form of desired behaviors are set for each child, a program designed to generate and maintain a desired level of motivation for each child is carried out, and finally the child's motivational progress is assessed. The components of the system of individually guided motivation described in this paper include a statement of behaviors indicative of motivation, a list of motivational principles based on theory and research and instructional guides based on these principles, descriptions of procedures for assessing motivation, and finally descriptions of student and teacher activities which can be carried out to implement the principles of motivation. The motivational activities are usually directly tied to the instructional program in various curriculum areas and include large group class size group, small group, and one to one activities.
