Classroom Strategy Study
"If they enjoy it, it's a bonus and that's fine and I am all for it, but even if they don't enjoy it, there are good reasons for them to learn given material and therefore to work at it."
"I like to use the words like meaningful, worthwhile, satisfying, valued, and appreciated. Those are the right kinds of words to describe the affective response of children when they are learning the way they ought to be learning."
Brophy's research has enlightened teachers to keep in mind that they must keep their students engaged in their work and to help them learn
Reasons for what is being taught indicates the importance of learning
Proper reasons provided allows students to understand and take learning seriously
Need to learn how to utilize and implement strategies to set expectations and ensure motivation
Establish a focus in understanding, appreciation, and application
