Learners are motivational A hypothetical (brief) case study In past years Jenny has seemed engaged with her schoolwork, often asking and answering question in class, and spending time on completing projects for homework.
However, since starting grade 6 this year, Jenny has been showing less interest in her class work, and she was late handing up her last project, which was poorly done. Jenny’s teacher has attempted to talk to her. Jenny’s response was that she didn’t relly care about her schoolwork this year, that much of it was getting too hard for her anyway, and she couldn’t see much point in putting in time for stuff that was boring and too difficult for her. # your task
