For project #2, Pat Marie and I researched how to motivate students inside he classroom. We learned about intrinsic and extrinsic motivation and how each affects students. The information was interesting, because it is applicable to my life and school experience as well. I like this focus for a project, because I feel that it is so very applicable to a successful classroom. If the teacher knows what motivates the students, they’ve already won half the battle. Motivation, no matter what it is, is at the root of all learning.
