      • Modeling excitement , making lessons realistic, and addressing students' interest are paramount to motivation.
    • A Teacher is not only the factor of motivating students
      • A teacher’s influence on motivation to learn also depends on attitudes and traits that individual students carry into the classroom .
      • There is a point at which the teacher alone cannot overcome the negative effects of hostile behavior and self-defeating attitudes in a student
