Middle School Students' Understanding of Meaningful Learning and Engaging Classroom Activities.
Ares, Nancy; Gorrell, Jeffrey
Journal of Research in Childhood Education, v16 n2 p263-77 Spr-Sum 2002
Examined middle school students' perceptions of the conditions that foster their meaningful engagement in classroom learning. Found that students described classroom environments in which students are mentally and physically active in instructional activities that are meaningful, varied, and interesting, and that involve group learning. Interesting and varied tasks were contrasted favorably with routines that discourage student motivation. (Author/KB)
