Instruction Model  Motivational 
OverviewMost students are not intrinsically motivated to study. Teachers and parents must supply adequate extrinsic motivation until the student becomes intrinsically motivated. It answers such questions as, "Why is this class required anyway?", "Will there be a lot of homework?", and "What do I have to do to, get an 'A'?"

When to Use the Motivational ModelThis model is useful at the beginning of a school year and periodically during the course to motivate students and frame the course requirements.

Steps in the Motivational Model

Lesson Evaluation ChecklistDo the students have a basic understanding of the role of the subject material in their life? Do the students understand the homework, quiz, and test requirements? Can the students identify ways in which the course material will help them in their lives? Do the students understand the reasoning behind the course requirements and class rules?
