Focus and Motivation: Two Contributing Factors That Lead a Student to Academic Success
McQuown, Adrienne
Online Submission
This study was conducted to determine whether or not a student's focus and motivation during a lesson is a contributor in their educational success rate. Six fifth grade students in an enrichment room from Cambria Elementary School, in Ebensburg, Pennsylvania, participated in the study that spanned through April to June of 2011. These students were the focus of the study because they lacked the focus and motivation that was needed when in the enrichment room. These students were seen three times per week for one hour each time. Teacher observations, student surveys, and the assessments that were given both before and after the implementation of the study were used to determine if these students had a higher success rate when they were more attentive and motivated to complete the lessons. Appended are: (1) Research Questions and Data Sources; (2) Lesson Focus Journal Entry; (3) Teacher Focus Checklist; (4) Learning Style Rating Sheet; and (5) Atlantis: The Lost City.
