“In each of these puzzles, a list of words is given. To solve the puzzle, think of a single word that goes with each to form a compound word (or word pair that functions as a compound word). For example, if the given words are volley, field, and bearing, then the answer would be ball, because the word ball can be added to each of the other words to form volleyball, ballfield, and ball bearing. Do you understand?”

Professor S. Marty Pants

What s my motivation

What’s my motivation?


Making horses thirsty increasing motivation to learn

So, I have to graduate. My dad has a job for me in the family business, but he won’t hire me until I graduate, and I need the cash for my brand new car! So I have got to pass these tests, I mean really I want an “A”. I mean I am an A student, you tell me what I need to do and I’ll do it.. But these professors just go on and on, I mean, just tell me what is on the test! I’m busy, you know? On that paper, I copied some of it, but most of it I sat down and wrote, but some things came up at the last minute. But if I know what is on the test, I can cram it, get an A, and get on with life. I mean school is ok, but who is going to need all of this stuff anyway?

This is Charlie

…to get the grade, baby!

….to get parent/teacher approval

…to feel pride in GPA

….to avoid feelings of failure


Making horses thirsty increasing motivation to learn

…to be educated and cultured

….to provide for yourself and loved ones

…for the sheer joy, pleasure and interest of learning

So, I have to graduate. My dad has a job for me in the family business, but he won’t hire me until I graduate, and I am ready to stop living off scholarships and loans, and start taking care of myself. So I have got to pass these tests. I mean I would really want an A, who wouldn’t? But I want to understand what I am learning, not just cram for a test and forget it in a week. My study group really helps, we talk through these ideas, quiz each other and stuff. You know, I feel like I want to learn it even more so I can help them if they get stuck on something. Some of this stuff I won’t ever need, but who knows? A lot of it is interesting anyway, even if I never use it. Besides, a lot of my friends couldn’t even get here, and I feel very lucky to get a college education.
