Blazer, Christie
Research Services, Miami-Dade County Public Schools
Keeping students interested in school and motivating them to succeed are challenges that even the most experienced teachers face every year. A host of student variables can lead to low levels of motivation, but research indicates that educational settings also influence motivation levels. Some studies have found that motivation is a stronger predictor of student success than grades or achievement and aptitude tests. Therefore, it is imperative that educators use effective motivational strategies. This Information Capsule summarizes 20 research-based strategies that have been found to increase student motivation. Brief explanations of motivational theory and the difference between intrinsic and extrinsic motivation are also provided.
