Abstract

The study seeks to find out the extent to which students are motivated in learning English through language arts activities and the factors affecting their learning motivation. Adopting action research with support of qualitative approach, the study firstly examined students’ learning motivation towards language arts activities, thus explored the factors leading to the results though videotaped lesson observations and interviews. It was found that a majority of the students were motivated by language arts activities except for the writing task as compared to non language arts and there were three factors leading to the findings: varieties of activities, form of assessment and learning styles. The implication hence suggested ways to enhance learning motivation of students who were not motivated during language arts activities or specific tasks.
