Students who are intrinsically motivated are more successful than students who are reliant on extrinsic motivators. Educators are in many ways responsible for the success of their students. It is the responsibility of the teacher to create an environment where students are motivated to learn. This work contains a guidebook focused on how educators can create a classroom environment where students are intrinsically motivated. Teachers can use this guidebook as a tool in their classroom. It provides specific as well as general strategies that can be implemented in elementary through high school classrooms to create an environment where students are intrinsically motivated to learn.
