Using TARGETTS to Create Learning Environments that Support Mathematical Understanding and Adaptive Motivation
Gilbert, Melissa C.; Musu, Lauren E.
Teaching Children Mathematics, v15 n3 p138-143 Oct 2008
This article focuses on learning environments that support students' mathematical understanding and enhance their adaptive motivation. Drawing on the authors' experiences as teachers and teacher educators, they first describe adaptive motivation. They then introduce TARGETTS, a lesson planning and analysis tool, and describe ways in which teachers can use this tool to highlight specific instructional strategies that support both adaptive motivation and mathematical understanding. (Contains 2 tables.)
