Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
The aim of this essay is to find out what motivation in a school environment actually means and how practicing teachers work with trying to motivate their students to learn English. Interviews were performed with three English teachers from different levels and municipalities in Sweden using qualitative and semi-structured questions. It was found that the teachers have both different and similar views on how to work with motivating their students. It is suggested that there are different kinds of motivation and that motivation is a vital part of the work a teacher does. Furthermore, there are numerous methods to apply to a class, and teachers have to try and develop a feeling for which ones to use.
