Learning Log 10 Knowledge The main idea of chapter 10 is that motivation, which is an internal process that activates, guides, and maintains behavior over time, is critically important for students and teachers in the classroom. Theories of motivation include Maslow’s human needs theory (hierarchy of needs), the attribution theory (locus of control), and the expectancy theory. Another issue addressed talks about how teachers can enhance motivation by emphasizing learning goals so that students see the purpose of school as gaining knowledge and competence, and by communicating positive expectations. Achievement motivation, or the desire to experience success and to participate in activities in which success depends on personal effort, is also stressed as one of the most important types of motivation. Teachers can increase student’s motivation to learn by using intrinsic and extrinsic incentives, can reward performance by using praise, feedback and grades, and should use cooperative learning methods that emphasize cooperative goal structures over competitive goal structures and reward effort and improvement. Comparison Motivation is an internal process that activates, guides, and maintains behavior over time. It is what gets you going, keeps you going, and determines where you’re trying to go.
