The key to supporting children’s and young people’s learning is motivation, even if this is one to one with a pupil, in a small group or as a whole class, whether you are supporting the teacher or taking the class. Approaches to motivation include behavioural, cognitive, physiological and social. Therefore, when setting goals for pupils to achieve it is a crucial element. A pupil’s behaviour and the persistence and strength of their behaviour is all affected by motivation.
The concept of self-efficacy is an important construct in social cognitive theory (Bandura, 1986). The theory holds that self-referent thought mediates between knowledge and action, and consequently individuals evaluate their own experiences and thought processes through self-reflection. The process of self-reflection includes a focus on our beliefs about self, which in turn includes an evaluation of the extent to which we exercise control over our self. It is an evaluation of our control over our beliefs, values, attitudes, environment and behavior (Bandura, 1977, 1997). The focus on self in the sense of personal agency can be regarded as perceived self-efficacy (Bandura 1977, 1997)
A self-directed, intrinsically motivated, active learner possesses numerous essential features that help one to excel on their studies.

Of the skills that are most needed for anyone to succeed in any endeavor, none is more important than the ability to communicate with those around you. Indeed communication is essential if we could not communicate at all, we would not be able to achieve task no matter how small. Gun violence is not about guns. It’s about people around us who need to find other ways to communicate and about us needing to be willing to listen. The better you can communicate the more likely you are to be able to effectively reach those around you or to solve the problems that we all encounter each day.
We chose a study to find out what drives a community college student to choose particular courses. Many students try to find the easiest option to get in and out as soon as possible; however, these classes that appeal to students initially tend to be more challenging than expected. We are aware that many community college students also work and have other priorities outside of school. This may be the reason why students are searching for less challenging courses. Our hypothesis is that Citrus College students prefer courses that are non-challenging over courses that are challenging. If we discover what characteristics will create an ideal class environment, students with other obligations will have a higher
“The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character - that is the goal of true education,” as quoted by Martin Luther King Jr. Although education serves as a tool to create erudite and knowledgeable civilians. Intelligence is a quality that is to be admired and worshipped by society. However, there are a growing number of individuals who disagree with this. Instead of valuing intelligence as the greatest treasure, researchers Angela Lee Duckworth of University of Pennsylvania, Stephanie M. Carlson of University of Minnesota, and leaders of Riverdale Country School and KIPP in New York City, are realizing that grit and self-regulation are the most influential, proficient, and notable qualities for a student to have in order to succeed in life.
I agree with you that the acronym SCOOP can be a helpful tool for adolescents to utilize in many situations, but I think it could also be a useful acronym for stepparents. Starting a stepfamily is a big change for everyone, especially children. It is important for adults to be respectful, have good communication, optimistic and patient as possible. Supportive respect, while children have to be respectful of adults, it is also important to be respected by the stepparent. In a stepfamily, children can often feel left out and uncertain so communication is a must talking can help solve problems.
Autonomy and relatedness were focused upon in our most recent workshop on the journal article titled The Importance of Supporting Autonomy and Perceived Competence in Facilitating Long-Term Tobacco Abstinence by Williams, Niemiec, Patrick, Ryan, and Deci. The article described a research study they conducted with a little over a thousand tobacco smokers. Using the ideas fostered in Self-Deturmination theory (SDT) to determine the most beneficial method to reduce the unhealthy habit. Interestingly, the participant group contained both individuals who actively wanted to quit smoking and those who did not.
Gagné and Deci (2005) expounded the first basic need of autonomy as “[…] acting with a sense of volition and having the experience of choice” (p.333). Presumably, to be autonomous denotes to experience volition and self-endorsement of your own actions. Worded differently, autonomy appertains to individuals' free-will in making their choices as well as being the perceived origin of their own actions. It is effectively developed in environments where children or teenagers can feel competent and related to others (Deci, et al., 1991).
The theory of personal liberty is an ethical system proposed by Robert Nozick in 1974. The system is based upon the primact of single value rather than single principle which is liberty. Liberty is thought to be the first requirement of society. An institution or law that violates individual liberty has to be rejected even if it may result in greater happiness and increased benefit for others. Nozick agrees that society is an association of individuals, and that cooperation between these individuals is necessary for economic gains. The holding of each individuals in income, wealth, and the other bases of self-respect are derived form other people in exchange for goods or services or received as gifts. And existing pattern of holdings may have
This quote resonates with me, because one of the basic things (generally) Civilized people are gifted with, the ability of expression, However The realization that there are exceptions to this, such as people who cannot move or speak, or people who are otherwise inhibited in this area is vital. Nevertheless, Speaking generally, it is one of the most basic human needs, the ability to express oneself. Basic human expression, be it through sign language, writing, body language, gesticulations, or speech, is the most important thing in human life. One could even go as far to say that it is the foundation of society. A person who can communicate can form strategy,
