Of the factors that influence student learning, motivation is surely one of the most potent. Teachers can affect student motivation in ways that either facilitate or impede learning. This paper describes why this is so, and offers specific suggestions for promoting positive student motivation. For example, one theory of motivation holds that students are motivated to engage in behaviors 1) that have value to them, and 2) where they have a reasonable expectation to succeed.
