2ReflectionReflectionThis class helped me visualize student differences in learning and how we as teachers canhelp mold them. I’ve always known the importance of teacher and student relationships. Students look up to their teachers and want to be liked. It increases their ability to learn when they like their teachers [ CITATION Dan15 \l 1033 ]. It is, however, in this class, I realized the importance of setting different goals and how motivation in students reflected their learning. After taking this class, I can see just how much this can affect a student. Lack of motivation can make profound impact on students.Connections among Motivation, Engagement, and LearningEngagement in students can take on a variety of different forms. If you are working on a paper engagement will be students on laptops or computers working hard to type out the information. If, however, you are working on a project-based learning assignment, students could be up moving around talking and making a lot of noise. My point being, there is no single example of engagement looks like. Engagement means working hard on your task. The best way to describe this is a student focused on and working on their assignment. Motivation is a key factor in student engagement. If a student is motivated to learn the material, then they will stay engaged in the task. A lot of motivation is intrinsic; however, teachers play a large role in motivation [ CITATION Ste15 \l 1033 ]. Teachers must utilize strategies to keep student’s attention and keep their interest.
