Motivating Students for Excellence. The Best of ERIC on Educational Management, Number 73.
ERIC Clearinghouse on Educational Management, Eugene, OR.
The first 2 of the 12 publications reviewed in this annotated bibliography use Abraham Maslow's hierarchy of needs to address problems, respectively, of teaching composition and of motivating students by teaching them how to set goals, formulate goal-achievement strategies, and successfully implement their plans. Subsequent reports suggest ways of fostering student learning and motivation in elementary school classrooms, provide a review of a research synthesis on student discipline and motivation, explore key factors influencing degrees of motivation, and offer an administrator's guide for understanding student motivation and training teachers in motivation theories and practices. The remaining documents considered include a study guide of methods for motivating students in grades 7-9, a practitioner's guide to major concepts and theories of motivation, an article on the use of competition and public recognition as motivational tools, a description of motivation techniques at Medina (New York) Senior High School, a report emphasizing the importance of "intrinsic motivation," and an article offering strategies for motivating unmotivated students.
