  1. As a teacher, you have some students who clearly want to learn the subject matter you are teaching and other students who are interested only in the grades they get in your class.
    1. Considering the textbook’s discussion of extrinsic versus intrinsic motivation, how would you expect the two groups of students to differ in terms of classroom learning and performance? Describe fivedifferences you are likely to see between them.
    2. Describe three strategies you might use to promote intrinsic motivation in the grade-oriented students.
  2. Describe the five needs in Maslow’s hierarchy. Give examples of how individuals with each need might behave.
  3. In a short paragraph, describe the basic idea underlying self-worth theory. In a second paragraph, explain what self-handicapping is and the role it plays with regard to self-worth. To illustrate your discussion, describe two different kinds of self-handicapping that might occur.
  4. Some motivation theorists believe that students are apt to be intrinsically motivated only if they have both a sense of competenceand a sense of autonomy.
    1. Briefly describe these two concepts, illustrating each with a concrete example.
    2. With these two possible prerequisites for intrinsic motivation in mind, describe four strategies for promoting intrinsic motivation in a classroom setting.
  5. Some motivation theorists believe that human beings have a basic need for relatedness.
    1. In a paragraph, explain what theorists mean by this concept, and describe three different student behaviors you might see that would indicate a high need for relatedness.
    2. In three additional paragraphs, describe three different strategies you might use to address students’ need for relatedness in the classroom. Be specific as to what you might do.
  6. Most early information processing theorists portrayed human cognition as being a relatively unemotional enterprise, but increasingly researchers have come to realize that cognition and emotion are closely intertwined. Drawing on the textbook’s discussion of affect and its effects, describe three different ways in which cognitive processes and emotions are interrelated, and give a concrete example to illustrate each interrelationship you identify.
  7. Describe how learners’ level of anxiety is likely to affect their learning and performance, being sure to include the concepts of facilitating anxiety and debilitating anxiety in your discussion. Then describe three strategies you might use to keep learners’ anxiety at a productive level.
