Assessment of Teacher Motivation Approaches in the Less Developed Countries
Iliya, Amos; Ifeoma, Loko Grace
Journal of Education and Practice, v6 n22 p10-17 2015
Motivation is an internal process that makes a person move toward a goal. Therefore, this paper examines both traditional and new approaches to teacher motivation, threats to teacher motivation and measures for shaping teacher motivation. The paper concludes that intrinsic rewards such as self-respect, responsibility, and a sense of accomplishment as well as participatory school improvement, comprehensive staff development and supportive teacher evaluation hold great promise for improving teachers' professional motivation.
