The Effect of Authentic Materials on the Motivation of EFL Learners.
Peacock, Matthew
ELT Journal, v51 n2 p144-56 Apr 1997
Investigates whether authentic materials increase student motivation in the classroom. Findings reveal that while on-task behavior and observed motivation increased significantly when authentic materials were used, self-reported motivation only increased over the last 12 days of the study. Students reported authentic materials to be less interesting than artificial materials. (17 references) (Author/CK)
