Religion and Motivation in Learning Religion Journal Assignment Respect is a very important aspect of class discipline. Respect towards peers, property, and the teacher all lead to the student in being the best student they can be. If the student does not respect anything in the classroom, the learning process is hampered by the student themselves; they are the ones without respect, therefore they do not want to learn and are totally responsible for the grade they are given. Respect is fundamental in the process of learning. Effort is second most important in the learning process.
If the student does not want to learn, what will they learn? Will they learn everything, or nothing? If the student does not give full effort and listen everytime a lesson is presented, he will not learn anything, therefore failing the course. This depends on the degree of effort, if the effort is high, and the student is somewhat oriented towards attaining a good grade, a high grade of effort will be presented. Effort is the best way in determining a student’s will to learn.
