Attention and Motivation, Panel 3; Conference on Studies in Reading (Washington, D.C., August, 1974).
Smith, Marshall S., Ed.
The problem of this conference panel was to explore attentional and motivational systems and the factors in classroom management that influence them. The contents of this panel report consist of three approaches to the problem: the study of the psychological state of children as they take part in schooling, with special consideration given to the psychophysiological substrates of attention, to external load factors influencing attention, and to children's conceptions of themselves as learners; programs directed toward children and teachers in the classroom (specifically, the interaction processes that bring about appropriate engagement); and studies of teachers and of the system within which they work. Also included are a list of references and two appendixes: the first is an outline of the original research agenda on attention and motivation, with reactions to the outline; the second contains two papers, one on the acquisition of literacy and the other on teacher development.
