Imagine that you are a preschool teacher. Describe a
situation in which you would use an extrinsic reward to motivate a
preschooler. Discuss how these motivators could result in learned
helplessness. Now, give examples and explain how you can lead the same
child to achieve intrinsic motivation by becoming his or her own locus
of control. Keep in mind that your end goal is for the child to be
intrinsically motivated so that he or she has ownership of the behavior.
