What is Motivation? - ETCSINES

In my attempt at defining the concept of motivation, the first step I would take is to state it expressly that I can not and would not attempt to talk about all that motivation entails, to do this would mean embarking on a long journey of several articles Which is not likely in the end to exhaust the comprehensive concept of motivation.

An Introduction to the word "Motivation" - ETCSINES

She walks into the classroom majestically, she was good at what she does, she was ready to do justice to the topic in the course outline.

Truthfully, the first thing that comes to an average student's mind is fear. You begin to wonder how you are supposed to actually "read" all of the books. Just a textbook or two on a normal day is seen as a really burdensome task by most students, myself inclusive, how much more f

Does Extra Curricular Activities Aid Reading? - ETCSINES

Moderacy is a word said by many but used by few in the generation we find ourselves. How do you cool off an over-heating computer, it's very simple, Turning it off for a while.

The moment you lose priority over what lies ahead of you, it is either you "major on your minor or minor on your major".

What is extra curricular activities?  The word “extracurricular” can be broken down into its roots for a literal explanation: “extra” means “outside” and “curricular” refers to all of the work you do in the classroom. So extracurricular activities are just activities that you do outside of class.
