Teaching Strategies To Improve Student Motivation.
Kariotakis, Constantine; Kelly-Moutvic, Karen; Roberts, Cathy
This action research project evaluated a program to improve student motivation. The targeted population consisted of sixth- and eleventh-grade students in grammar/literature, physical education, and social studies classes in suburban Chicago. Three interventions were selected: incorporation of multiple intelligence strategies, implementation of cooperative learning, and use of authentic assessment. A post-intervention student survey and checklist indicated that student motivation was improved by the intervention. (Eleven appendices include parent letter, student surveys, and lesson materials. Contains 27 references.) (Author/EV)
