All teachers strive to ignite motivation within their students. This research explores studies that focus on what motivates people to learn and do well. The study looks at extrinsic and intrinsic motivators in a variety of settings. By finding common motivators, teachers may be able to tap into what intrinsically motivates students to better serve them in the classroom. The use of extrinsic rewards used to motivate students is discussed. Early work from experts in the field of motivation research; Deci, Ryan, Wigfield, Eccles and Kohn is reviewed to give some historical background on motivation research along with current studies relating to the topic. This research also looks at motivation as it is affected by family, relationships with peers and teachers and how supportive the classroom environment is.
