Example text

Families, communities, social institutions) working together towards a common goal, thus reflecting parallel moves in the field towards the analysis of motivation as a socially distributed process. We shall come back to this perspective later in the chapter. According to Covington’s (1992) self-worth theory, people are highly motivated to maintain a fundamental sense of personal value and worth, especially in the face of competition, failure and negative feedback. This basic need for self-worth generates a number of unique patterns of motivational beliefs and face-saving behaviours in school settings, particularly when potentially poor performance imposes a threat to the student’s self-esteem.

Factor analytical studies examining data from samples in various parts of the world have again and again produced a factor made up of all, or many of, the above components, attesting to the fact that L2 motivation is generally associated with a positive outlook towards the L2 group and the values the L2 is linked with, regardless of the nature of the actual learning context. For example, in a large-scale nationwide A HISTORICAL OVERVIEW study in Hungary, a language-learning environment that is strikingly different from Canada in that it is largely monolingual and monocultural, and where foreign languages are taught primarily as a school subject with limited contact with L2 speakers, Dörnyei and Clément (2001) found integrativeness to be the most powerful general component of participants’ generalised language-related disposition, determining language choice and the general level of effort students intended to invest in the learning process.

Self-worth theory highlights the critical importance of a person’s sense of ability or competence in shaping motivation in educational or other achievement settings. Perceived competence or ability is likewise a core feature of attributional processes and self-efficacy beliefs. Very recently, there has been a major push towards refocusing the achievement motivation framework around the concept of ‘competence’, with the publication of 35 papers by leading achievement motivation researchers in a collected volume entitled Handbook of Competence and Motivation (Elliot and Dweck, 2007a).
