Motivation in School Learning

by Ernest R. Hilgard & David H. Russell - 1950

We not only make capital of children's interests but we seek to direct those interests along appropriate lines. It is this general program with which the present chapter is concerned. First there will be some general observations on the motives of children, then will follow a discussion of the relationships between motivation and learning. Next, consideration will be given to some of the more specific motivational problems at the administrative, classroom, and interpersonal levels. Finally, the chapter returns to a summary of the work of school people in providing well-motivated learning situations.
