Intelligence, Motivation, and the Quantity and Quality of Academic Work and Their Impacts on the Learning of Students: A Practitioner's Reaction.
Prokop, Harvey L.
This paper analyzes the feasibility and likelihood of the implementations of recommendations in three papers: "Understanding Intelligence: What's in It for Educators?" (Robert J. Sternberg and Richard K. Wagner); "Motivating Students to Learn: A Lifelong Perspective" (Deborah J. Stipek); and "Academic Work" (Walter Doyle). Provided are summaries of all three papers and outlines of the major points which are either direct or indirect recommendations. Conclusions of the analysis include: (1) All three presentations do an "outstanding" job of summarizing the appropriate research and pointing educators in directions which the research seems to indicate; and (2) Many of the recommendations are characterized by less than precise directions of either what is to be done, or how such recommendations are to be implemented.
