Teaching for Success: Assisting Helpless Students in Their Academic Development.
Perry, Raymond P.
Education Canada, v39 n1 p16-19 Spr 1999
Bernard Weiner and other motivation researchers have explored what happens to students when they try to explain why they succeed or fail. Causal attributions directly affect motivation and make the difference between helpless and mastery-oriented students. Suggestions are offered to educators to help change the attributions of helpless students and to avoid comments that foster helplessness. (CDS)
