Abstract [en]

This qualitative review concerns motivation out of a teacher’s perspective. The aim of this study is to illuminate how a few teachers work with motivational work in school and elucidate which traits and competences the teachers consider important for them as motivatiors to possess. The result is based on semi-structured interviews with four active teachers with junior school qualifications. The objective was to learn more about the teacher’s own experiences and opinions regarding the construct of motivation, motivational work and their own role as motivators. The result shows that the teachers themselves needs to find the substance at hand interesting to be able to efficiently motivate their students to learn. It’s also important for the teachers to create a good and positive classroom environment and use a personalized style of teaching where student’s prior knowledge and interests serve as a starting-point.
