Renninger, K. Ann; Hidi, Suzanne E. – Theory Into Practice, 2022
Educators have a critical stake in supporting the development of interest--as the presence of interest benefits sustained engagement and learning.

Bembenutty, Hefer – Theory Into Practice, 2022
To be academically successful, students need to delay gratification, sustain motivation, keep a high level of self-efficacy, and maintain an appropriate balance within their hot/cool cognitive-affective system.

Graham, Sandra; Taylor, April Z. – Theory Into Practice, 2022
Attribution theory is concerned with why outcomes occur such as "Why did I fail the exam?" or "Why are they picking on me?" (Weiner, 1986, 2018; see Graham, 2020 for a review). Although this article focuses on achievement, attributions are relevant to the social as well as the achievement domain. Both questions concern failure…

We briefly…

Mathematics educators often know the widespread nature of mathematics anxiety and may even be aware of the debilitating effect it can have on their students.

Archer, Amerah; Kumar, Revathy; Pilcher, Eric – Theory Into Practice, 2022
Recruiting and retaining students of color in colleges of education in predominately White institutions (PWIs) is a source of concern. Efforts to reverse this trend have proven unsuccessful. This article uses the Expectancy-Value-Cost motivational framework to understand three underlying cultural costs that negatively impact preservice teachers of…

Developing self-regulated learning (SRL) processes (i.e., goal-setting, strategy use, self-monitoring, and attributions) can enhance motivational beliefs including self-efficacy, interest, and task value. In this article, SRL processes and motivation are conceptualized within a cyclical feedback loop, which demonstrates how SRL processes affect…

Louick, Rebecca; Muenks, Katherine – Theory Into Practice, 2022
Given that the majority of students with learning disabilities (LD) are currently educated alongside general education peers for the majority of the school day in inclusive classrooms, it behooves motivation scholars to consider the practical implications of their research for all teachers working with students with LD. The purpose of this article…

Ieva, Kara; Beasley, Jordon – Theory Into Practice, 2022
Evidence suggests teachers, intentionally and unintentionally, perpetuate racist practices in the classroom affecting students' grades, engagement, opportunities, and mental health. Over time these collective experiences result in generational academic trauma. Within educational settings, school counselors (SCs) work in a myriad of ways to…

Miller, Dustin W.; Stewart, Jaime S.; Brown, Melvin J. – Theory Into Practice, 2022
Arguably, K-12 schools are caught in the crossfire of a political divide in this country. This division is evidenced through examples of parent frustration toward school leaders' attempts (or lack thereof) to address important topics like racism in schools. Although the democratic ideal promotes student exposure to differing viewpoints in order to…

Mayes, Renae D.; Pianta, Rebecca; Oglesby, Alicia; ZyromskI, Brett – Theory Into Practice, 2022
COVID-19 has increased the emphasis on social emotional learning (SEL) in our schools. Unfortunately, the current approaches to SEL can often perpetuate racial hierarchies, apply a deficit lens toward students, and emphasize the need for student-level change while ignoring the historical, social, and cultural influences that created and actively…

This article disentangles social and emotional learning (SEL) into its 2 constitutive parts--sociality and emotionality through a backward mapping of the School Development Program (SDP) developed by James Comer. This article argues that Comer's school-level intervention is a process model for how to achieve SEL outcomes given its intentionality…

Leonard, Ann M.; Woodland, Rebecca H. – Theory Into Practice, 2022
There is a sense of urgency among P-12 educators to dismantle systemic school-based racism and radically transform conditions for teaching and learning in ways that advance equity, social justice, and social-emotional learning (SEL). This transformation cannot be achieved through typical top-down, short-term approaches to school improvement or…
