Motivation in the ClassroomAccording to Lile (2002), ?Motivation is the key to all learning. Lack of motivation is perhaps the biggest obstacle faced by teachers, counselors, school administrators, and parents.? A lack of motivation causes the most intelligent of students to underperform and underachieve. Therefore, teachers are responsible for creating an environment that fosters student motivation in the classroom. This is especially true in the TEFL or ESL classroom, in which students may already be feeling a considerable amount of anxiety due to the daunting task of learning a new language or being thrust into an unfamiliar culture. Motivating students in a TEFL class is not rocket science, though. TESL teachers have a wealth of tools at their disposal to make learning English fun for their students. ?First, at the beginning of the lesson, build a context where the target language might be used. Then ? when building a dialog or structure chart on the marker board ? attempt to elicit as much of that language as possible from the students,? (?student Motivation in the EFL Classroom.?). This first step depends on a precursor: effective lesson planning. Lile (2002) points out the importance of good lesson plans in creating a classroom environment that is conducive to motivation.
