“Motivation is the process whereby goal-orientated activity is instigated and sustained” (Schunk, Pintrich & Meece, 2008. As cited in Eggen & Kauchak, 2010, p.284). Motivation comes in many forms and can be divided into two broad categories - extrinsic and intrinsic motivation. Extrinsic motivators are external
Motivation often is classified as intrinsic or extrinsic. Students who are motivated intrinsically have an internal drive to succeed and a personal interest in the material. Students with extrinsic motivation engage in activities to obtain external incentives, such as grades or rewards (Sedden & Clark, 2016). Although, instructors note that intrinsic motivation is best for students, many
[This lesson plan is intended to guide students from their initial introduction to the Spanish language to a basic level of competency in terms of communication. Students would progress from remembering and reciting the alphabet to combining vocabulary words into simple sentences.]
Rebekah Cortes-Rios, an eighteen year old student, was born in Watsonville CA. At the age of five her parents decided to move to Madera in search of a better life. She has three female siblings, two older ones and a younger sibling. She enjoys having animals and looking after them, she has three dogs, two doves and a kitten. In high school she was involved in various clubs and volunteer activities that helped the community of Madera. Some of her hobbies include reading, learning german, dancing bachata and editing home-made videos.
On the other hand, extrinsic motivation is when a person takes actions knowing that at the end of that action there is a reward waiting for him or her. In this case, the person does it not because thinking about self-development, peace, etc. but about the reward. An example could be that the boy’s mother will not let the boy watch his favorite cartoons, until he finishes his homework. That way the boy will finish his homework just to be able to watch the cartoons, but does not care if he fully understands the materials on which the homework was about.
Originally from Durango, Durango Mexico, Veronica Mendez Nunez is 17 years old born on March 20, 1998 that migrated to the United States of America when she was 10 years old. As the Europeans did back in 1492, Veronica and her parents came to the USA looking for a better life quality. The opportunities in the united states of american are bigger as every body knows and Veronica is willing to take advantage of that. Currently residing in Sylmar California,
Extrinsic motivation it is the motivation brought about by what a person is getting from a certain task, rather than interest in the task. An example of extrinsic motivation is when a student who is not particularly interested in math works hard in order to attain a good grade, and in a working person’s life, it could be working on a task that is not necessarily interesting to him/her, but that is giving a good amount of financial reward. A good example of intrinsic motivation is working as a volunteer in a children’s home because taking care of children is of personal interest and satisfaction, to the person, despite getting no reward.

Extrinsic motivation refers to the performance of an action to obtain an outcome (Study.com, n. d.). Unlike intrinsic motivation where one performs an action for its own sake, extrinsic motivation is to obtain external reward and is influenced by external factors. This type of motivation is also highly
It is the duty of the teacher to identify those factors and comprehend it completely in order to teach the students effectively. Among all these factors, motivation is one of the most significant one. Dorneyi (2001 a) addresses the relevance of motivation by asserting, “ ‘motivation' is related to one of the most basic aspects of the human mind, and most teachers and researchers would agree that it has a very important role in determining success or failure in any learning situation. My personal experience is that 99 per cent of language learners who really want to learn a foreign language (i.e. who are really motivated) will be able to master a reasonable working knowledge of it as a minimum, regardless of their language aptitude.”
Regarding the English teacher, she has utter freedom in what and how to teach. Nevertheless, she tries to plan the lessons with the main teacher to try to present the learners similar vocabulary in Spanish and in English. The aim of the institution is that students can approach to English in a friendly and positive atmosphere. Regarding the group I have been observing, it is integrated by 12 learners, aged 3 and 4 years old.
Sometimes, teachers may lead to de-motivation when the students have a lack of commitment to the learning process. Knowing the factors which motivate teachers towards teaching will help me to apply solutions to my research planning in ‘ESL Teacher Motivation in Sri Lankan Schools.’ When the teachers have a positive relationship with the students, it will lead teachers to deal with students’ problems and also to improve teacher motivation. Although many studies conducted by different researchers in different cultures disclose that the most common motivators are intrinsic reasons (Wadsworth, 2001, Watt H. M. G. and Richardson P. W., 2008), it may sometimes not be in all
The professional development of a teacher can be a challenging task yet not impossible. During the process of this course I have learned how to face this challenge. However developing my own ideas and style of language teaching is still a work in progress. As a prospective language teacher I take in all methods and principles this course as given me. In doing so I believe it will make me a better professional. This course has presented me with some thoughts ELT teachers need to have once the period of formal training is over.
It has not been easy but challenging and interesting. Unfortunately in this present job I have no colleagues, institution authorities or supervisors, which means anything I do in the classroom hardly ever provides me any feedback of what I am doing. Except of course for the eventual commentaries I receive from my students and the annual performance evaluation. Therefore I had this urgent necessity of obtaining some refreshment and reviewing of what I am doing in my classroom. I need to make a stop to reflect about how effective my teaching is. If the things I am doing are adequate and suitable to take my pupils to achieve their goal to communicate in the target language. Teaching in this context was at the beginning of the journey a frightening and stressing episode, first of all because I did not know anything about mining, geology, finance and accounting, just to mention some and not to make myself look like a complete ignorant. Secondly the atmosphere in a corporate has nothing to do with the informal ambience in an elementary school and thirdly but not least important, the students expectations and perceptions are not the same. Thus, I had to remake myself.
With the development of living standard in society, studying aboard has become more and more popular. Not only because of English as the world language is an agent to connect countries, but also speaking English fluently will be beneficial for the future personal development. In order to study oversea smoothly, the first step is to go through the language--English. Generally speaking, English has been divided into two different types according to the purposes which are English for Academic Purpose (EAP) and General English (GE). It is obvious that EAP teaches the knowledge which will be suitable for a higher education whereas GE is mainly focus on daily communications. Therefore, the teaching style or perhaps teacher’s role in the class is also different. In this essay, the writer will illustrate two different classifications by Harmer and Scrivener, after compare and contrast the two the teacher’s role, the writer will select one of the classification and justify it. Finally, the chosen classification will be put into practice ( justifying with the radios provided).
