What Makes a Student Improve?
Chambers, Kevin
Teaching Education, v6 n1 p9-19 Fall-Win 1994
A middle school teacher presents three case studies of seventh-grade students who began the school year poorly but then decided to change. All three students had challenging home situations but, after becoming motivated to succeed, showed dramatic and rapid improvement. Such motivational changes are seen as stemming ultimately from reasons intrinsic to the individual student. (SM)
