Motivation på SFI

En kvalitativ intervjuundersökning om fyra lärares uppfattningar kring hur man kan arbeta för att motivera eleverna på SFI

Due to lack of knowledge about motivation in Swedish for adult immigrants (SFI ), I have chosen to write about motivation. Motivation is a complex concept to understand. It has different meanings depending on what context the term is put in. In this study , you will read about the external and internal motivation . But also about integrative and instrumental motivation. The method chosen for this study is qualitative and I have used interviews.  The method has been inspired by hermeneutics as it is interested for the teachers' perceptions . The results have shown that there are methods and practices that can stimulate the students at SFI according to the teachers' perceptions. These approaches are: student participation, student goals , the environment in the classroom. The methods mentioned are simplification of the material , the student's current level , and interest in the task. Furthermore, even the teacher relationship and teacher expectations that are presented as these factors have an impact on student motivation. The results have also shown that through the various work dynasty and working methods , teachers can both stimulate the student's internal and external motivation but also their integrative and instrumental motivation.
