Motivation is the driving force that persuades a person to act in a certain way. Throughout the pages of this dissertation it showcases an amazing contrast between academically-related intrinsic motivation and extrinsic motivation. The target age group consisted of students in grades four through nine and involved 57 gifted students verses 53 learning disabled students.
How a student becomes motivated in the classroom is a vital element to a student’s future success. As an instructor it is crucial that the educator takes time to educate themselves of this important learning concept.
A COMPARISON OF INTRINSIC AND EXTRINSIC CLASSROOM MOTIVALTIONAL ORIENTATIONS OF GIFTED AND LEARNING DISABLED STUDENTS provides a very thorough look into analyzing motivation and how it applies to different students. I feel this dissertation contains priceless information that can be of benefit to any educator. It is simple to understand and provides a wealth of knowledge and examples that can be used in any education setting.
Dr. Skollingsberg has done an outstanding job in writing this dissertation. As a teacher and a lifelong learner I can appreciate the work that went into this project. I feel that this paper should be read by all educators. It offers a fresh and unique look at how motivation can be a key element to the learning cycle. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is searching for a way to make a bigger impact to their student’s education experience.
The topic and study of extrinsic and intrinsic motivation among gifted and learning disabled students in middle and high school is of special interest to me and I discovered many new ways of looking at student motivation in order to develop my classroom management skills, so that is very much appreciated.
What's more is that Dr. Skollingsberg's information is not only detailed and organized, but easy to understand. I didn't have to hunt for his information, purpose, or findings, so I was able to actually enjoy the work.
Much appreciated for my own academic development and understanding of students.
