Occasionally, students fail to complete assignments on time or with a high level of success. This may be due to procrastination or feeling unmotivated. Interview a friend, coworker, or family member on the reasons why they procrastinate. Follow up by asking what factors were different for those times when they did not procrastinate and completed assignments successfully.
Reflect on the answers you receive from the interview and write a 750-1,000-word analysis in which you do the following:
- Provide a thorough explanation of one theory of motivation.
- Connect the interview you conducted to elements of the theory of motivation. Use the theory to identify why your interviewee may have felt unmotivated.
- Using the interview and theory of motivation, identify ways that the student can feel more motivated to engage in their work in the future.
- Propose an intervention strategy, using the theory of motivation that we studied, to improve motivation for engaging in academic activities and/or other areas of everyday life.
Use two to three scholarly resources to support your explanations.
