The Six C's of Student Motivation by Mind Map: The Six C's of Student Motivation

1. Collaboration: Allowing students to work with their peers fosters sharing of ideas and can enhance thinking and learning

2. Constructing Meaning: Students need to find value and importance in what they are working on, in order to construct meaning

3. Consequences: What is the end result of their learning? Students need to have their work appreciated and valued

4. Choice: Students are more motivated when given a choice in their assignments

5. Control: Giving students decision making opportunities promotes ownership which in turn provides motivation

6. Challenge: The tasks assigned should be “just right”: challenging but not too difficult and beyond their abilities; and tasks that are too easy can become boring to students
