Enhancing Student Performance through Classroom Motivation.
Juarez, Alberto
The purpose of this study was to identify relationships among three components of motivation: (1) teacher-student relations; (2) the role of teachers as care givers; and (3) the importance of homework in regard to student academic performance. Participants were 31 seventh and eighth graders from a predominantly Hispanic, low-income urban school. Student questionnaires and formal observations were assessed, and patterns were observed among them. Findings reveal that students who have support from and confidence in their teachers are able to have confidence in themselves. As a result, providing a caring and supportive environment was found to be a necessary component in achieving student academic success. Findings indicate some relationship between homework and academic achievement; the lower the percentage of homework completed, the lower the test scores. (Contains 5 tables and 14 references.) (SLD)
