Unraveling the Motivational Factors Contributing to Low Achievement in General Science among Elementary School Students
Keywords:Mindset, Motivation to Learn, Science Achievement
Achievement and motivation to learn are positively correlated, according to decades of research. Learners that are driven to learn perform better academically in the classroom. The goal of this study was to identify the motivational factors that influence elementary school students' performance in the general science subject. Qualitative research design was used under interpretivism. The elementary school teachers of the Lahore district in Punjab, Pakistan, were the study's accessible population. To determine the motivational factors behind elementary school pupils' poor performance in general science, a purposeful sample of fifteen general science teachers was chosen for an interview. The study may have implications for how general science teachers can adapt activities that encourage motivation for learning to the nature and breadth of scientific subjects. To improve their students' enthusiasm to learn general science, science teachers can incorporate motivational activities that encourage learning during their lessons.
