Sweet, Anne P.; Guthrie, John T.
Reading Teacher, v49 n8 p660-62 May 1996
Looks at the spectrum of motivations children bring into the classroom and discusses how these motivations connect to instruction. Shows that intrinsic motivations sustain long-term literacy learning; extrinsic motivation controls behavior temporarily; intrinsic motivations are needed in integrated instruction; and extrinsic motivations are needed for skill building. Argues that teachers should align their motivational climate with their instruction. (SR)
