    Application
  • 7. Challenge
    Providing tasks to students that are just beyond their skill level but keep them motivated.
    Definition
    Application
    Teacher provides feedback during students drafts of work. Teacher explains where the students can improve, what to add, or what to edit out.
    This provides students with self efficacy and sustains their motivation.
    Students can use rubrics and online websites to check their work, read feedback, and make edits
  • 8. Control
    Involving the students into the classroom decision-making. When students play a part in control, they become responsible and independent.
    Allow students to control group titles. Teacher should provide students with responsibilities for each role so they then can make the proper decisions.
    Definition
    Application
  • 9. Collaboration
    Students use social interaction to communicate their ideas and thoughts.
    This can be done in teamwork or groups.
    Students can determine individual responsibilities to work towards end goal.
    Teacher can recommend all students create a g-mail account, allowing them access to google docs.
    Definition
    Application
  • 10. Constructing meaning
    If students perceive the value of knowledge, their level of interest increases.
    In powerpoints for example, students should be informed that sometimes…less is more.
    Definition
    Application
  • 11. Consequences
    A showcase of students work, increases student motivation.
    Teachers can showcase students’ work by having them present in class or display their work students’ work in hallways, on class web-sites, or at a ceremony.
