two types of motivation Intrinsic Motivation This is simply doing something because it’s personally rewarding. For example, you might play a sport because you enjoy it. Extrinsic Motivation This is when external factors are required to motivate you towards doing something. For example, you might play a sport to win a trophy.

Intrinsic vs. Extrinsic Here’s the downside: intrinsic motivation is much more useful when learning and makes teaching easier. Extrinsic motivation can be a very useful tool, especially to encourage students to do something they have absolutely no interest in whatsoever. The focus should be on using the students’ intrinsic motivations—their real motivations—to help them to learn..

Motivating Students to Learn. Use this knowledge when building your lessons. If you know one class loves pop songs, then use pop songs as a warm up. If another class is really energetic, channel that energy into activities where they get to move around. As students get older, they are not always motivated by grammar and studying, but they do want to learn English to read comic books, watch movies or follow a soccer game, and you can work with this.

Motivational strategies: Don’t yell, encourage. We all have that one class (or classes). It’s a few noisy students or maybe even the majority of the class. They constantly talk and never want to work and their constant indifference or downright refusal to work would make anyone agitated. You can feel yourself getting angry and before you know it, you’re yelling until your throat hurts. The students settle down, but only for a short time. They will continue to be noisy later on in the lesson or the next lesson. What can we do?Take 5 seconds. Talk to the students after the lesson. Connect with students and cultivate relationships. Offer encouragement!
