Wk1 DQ1Describe the relationship between engagement and motivation. Discuss how individual experiences,culture, language development, and mild to moderate disabilities affect a student’s intrinsic motivationand the ability to initiate and maintain engagement in the classroom environment.The relationship between motivation and engagement go hand in hand. As an educator it is criticalthat we find ways to motivate our students in order to get them to engage in the classroom. Taking thetime to get to know the students in the classroom their likes and dislikes, their learning styles and thenadjusting lessons that can target these students will increase their motivation to participate which inturns increases their engagement level and will better help them in retaining knowledge with whatthey are learning. Motivating our students is important and without its teachers have no entry point,however the level of engagement over time is what influences student outcomes (Taking Action onAdolescent Literacy). Taking the time to know your students allows the educator to best understandthem their background, culture, if they have a language barrier, their interest. Often times from myexperiences students who I have worked with that are unmotivated and not engaged in theassignment is because they have no interest and it has not been adjusted to meet their level ofunderstanding so it is often times above their abilities making them uninterested in trying.Irvin, J., Meltzer, J., & Dukes, M.

If we start feeding our students young in life with positive reinforcement and self-accountability it begins the foundations for then they get older that will stay with them.Epperson, A.
