Methodologies to Motivate Students.
Thompson, Victor C.
A review of literature on the subject of student motivation identified five areas which could be used to increase motivation among students: (1) using an incentive program; (2) using "fun" or "unusual" activities to motivate students; (3) goal setting; (4) students motivating other students; and (5) using parents to motivate students to learn. Following a discussion on each of these areas, a description is given of the survey instruments used to collect information from teachers, parents, and students on successful motivating techniques. A compilation and summary is presented on the data from the various surveys and interviews administered for this study. Some conclusions are offered on the value of positive reinforcement as a student motivator. References are included as are copies of the survey questionnaires. (JD)
