Abstract

Jane O'Reilly-Cavani looks at motivation from the pupils' perspective. Within a teaching context that displays many of the worrying characteristics to which many teachers can relate, the pupils help her to identify a number of positive features and some negative, covering many aspects of Dörnyei’s framework. How can the positives be built upon and the challenge of tackling the negatives be taken up?
