Motivational strategies applied in the first grade of primary school

Motivation is seen as an important factor in language learning. This study
was conducted in order to find out the motivational strategies applied by an
English teacher who was perceived successful in motivating students in learning
English in a primary school in Surabaya. It was focused on the motivational
strategies related to appropriate teacher behaviors and a good relationship with
the students; a pleasant and supportive classroom atmosphere; and a cohesive
learner group with appropriate group norms in the first grade of primary school.
Using qualitative approach, this study is based on Dörnyei’s (2001) theory on
motivational strategies. The data were from verbal and non-verbal interaction
between the teacher and students in the classroom, in two meetings within two
weeks. The duration of the class was 70 minutes for each meeting. The findings
showed that the English teacher applied motivational strategies related to
appropriate teacher behaviors and a good relationship with the students; and a
pleasant and supportive classroom atmosphere. Mostly, the teacher applied
motivational strategies related to appropriate teacher behaviors and a good
relationship with the students. However, the teacher did not apply any
motivational strategies related to a cohesive learner group with appropriate group
norms, since there was no activity related to making groups in the classroom. It
can be said that by applying all those motivational strategies, the students could be
motivated in learning English and be more active in following the lesson in the
classroom.
