Literature Review
Structure
Introduction
Many theories have been proposed to explain what motivates human behaviour. Although the literature covers a wide variety of such theories, this review will focus on five major issues which emerge repeatedly throughout the literature reviewed. These issues are: incorporation of the self-concept into traditional theories of motivation, the influence of rewards on motivation, the increasing importance of internal forces of motivation, autonomy and self-control as sources of motivation, and narcissism as an essential component of motivation. Although the literature presents these topics in a variety of contexts, this paper will primarily focus on their application to self-motivation.

Students develop a strong understanding of the content and writing conventions of subject areas through assignment tasks. Literacy researchers
(Johns, 2004, pp. 199-208; Taylor, 2006, p. 156-159)
claim that writing and understanding go hand in hand.
Smith and Brown (2005, p. 1)
argue that "to master your learning materials and extend your understandings, you need to write about the meanings you gain from your research". Furthermore, while students are researching, reading and writing in their discipline, they also learn how to "crack the code" of the discipline
(Bloggs et al., 2003, p. 44)
. It is a case of students learning by doing. By researching and writing essays with appropriate feedback from their lecturers, students are learning subject matter and how to write in their disciplines.
