Motivation and Learning in School. Fastback 43.
Frymier, Jack R.
This pamphlet, which discusses motivation and learning in school, is part of a series of booklets and monographs written in nontechnical language so that beginning teachers and the general public may gain a better understanding of educational problems. The pamphlet is organized in a series of questions and answers concerning motivation. Some of the points that these questions cover are as follows: (1) the definition of motivation; (2) the relationship between motivation and achievement; (3) characteristics of the motivated student; (4) psychological requirements for survival in our environment; (5) sources of learning for students; (6) the validity of I.Q. tests; (7) motivation as an indicator of performance of learning tasks; (8) the different dimensions of academic motivation (internal-external, intake-output, approach-avoidance); (9) how certain events affect and change student motivation; and (10) how teachers and administrators can affect the climate for motivation.
