THE SIX Cs OF MOTIVATION

What are they and how do you use them

in the classroom?

choice
CHOICE

Definition

  • Giving students choices promotes intrinsic motivation. Students are more motivated to do the work when the assignment encompasses one of their personal interests. The choices must be relevant to the students either in feeling (a degree of enjoyment) or value (gaining knowledge).

CHOICE

Application

  • Give students the freedom to select from a range of topics or ideas.
  • Let students submit their own topic ideas when the subject matter is not an issue
  • Provide students with a variety of media choice by which to accomplish the task
  • Collaboration with peers should also be an option.
challenge
CHALLENGE

Definition

  • Placing expectations just beyond the students’ skill level provides motivation. If the work is too difficult the students become stressed and anxious, but if there is not enough of a challenge the students become bored. To provide challenging work that is neither extreme the teacher needs to monitor the goals through the students’ feedback.

  • Set goals high, but not too high to become frustrating

Definition
