Our group will be presenting about the Achievement Motivation Training

Approach but we decided to conduct a motivational camp which is UPSR
Motivational Camp (Zero to Hero) it is a programme that will be carried out
specifically for Year 6 students who are going to seat for Ujian Penilaian Sekolah
Rendah (UPSR) together with EDU 5016 Motivation in Education class students as
well. This programme is used as incentive to prepare students toward betterment and
own development. UPSR is also equally important a other public examinations. This
programme involves famous speakers such as excellent teachers and experienced
examiners to deliver the lectures we will also conduct activities throughout the
programme. We hope this programme will help both school and students to achieve
their target to success. We were a privileged batch to be placed under such
professor, which is Dr. Nor Aniza Bt. Ahmad, who made great efforts and put her
heart and soul into making this experience fruitful for all of us.

Programmes and Activities

Ice Breaking
This camp will be held at Dark Training Camp, Janda Baik, Pahang so students
might find it difficult to adapt to the new environment and this camp also involves 65
different schools so the students will find it difficult to get along with new friends.
Moreover there will be also few students who will have homesick therefore; we have
come up with this Ice Breaking activity to create a connected and comfortable
learning environment within the students. Icebreakers are necessary for a successful
camp as Icebreakers allow for students to become emotionally connected within
themselves and increases motivation (Kelly, 2004). This session will be handled by
Nur Athirah Bt. Ramli, Natasya John Palantis, Nur Atiqah Bt. Mohd Noh and Yalini
A/P Ramani. The activity that we will conduct is, each student will be given a piece of
A4 paper. Then the A4 paper will be folded and divided into 4 sections. After that, the
Students are required to write number, which is related to them in the first section.
Then, they have to draw a picture of anything they like most in the second section. At
the third section, they have to draw a picture of anything they hate most. While at the
fourth section, they have to draw themselves in 20 years time. With this activity, the
students will move around and get to know their friends by asking and answering
questions from the information on the paper. The theory that is involve in this activity
will be Maslow's hierarchy of human motivation. This is because this activity involves,
survival, relationship, self-esteem, transformation, organization, community, and
society. The results, when presented visually, become instantly recognizable: It's
impossible to miss how the students actual behavior is the same or different from
each other.

Team building is very important, as the students will have difficulty to communicate to
one another. Students will also have difficulty to cooperate to one another and they
wont be able to show their leadership, Therefore team building is a process of and
an outcome from camp experiences. The result of team building is teamwork, which
refers to the effectiveness of the collaboration, communication, coordination, and
balance of contributions from a group. Adventure programs have resulted in
increases in leadership, communication, team building, and goal-setting skills
(Ripberger, 2008). Participation in sport often declines for youth after the age of 12
years. Although sports are not the interest of all young people, when coached
properly they can lead to team-building as evident in team cohesion, improved
communication skills, and increased motivation and enjoyment (Bloom, Loughead, &
Newin, 2008). Therefore Anis Farahanim, Khoo Nee Chyi, How Wendy and Rosmaria
Bt. Omar will be conducting an activity for this Team building. They will divide the
students into 10 groups and each group will be given 20 pieces of A4 paper and a
cellophane tape. The students are required to build a solid bridge that can hold a toy
truck containing a stone. Students are required to plan a good strategy to work
cooperatively, to lead effectively and to compete fairly. The theory applied in this
activity will be David McClelland (believes that the need for achievement is a distinct
human motive that can be distinguished fro other needs. One characteristic of
achievement-motivated people is that they see to be more concerned with personal
achievement than with the rewards of success. He believes that they do not reject
rewards but the rewards are not essential as the accomplishment itself (Argyris,
As Bahasa Malaysia is our national language and majority of Malaysian uses this
language as the mother tongue so the students will be over confidence. For them,
when they can speak well in that language they can score because according to
students perception, Bahasa Malaysia questions will be easy. Therefore the students
wont put much effort in this paper. We have come up with an activity for them to
improve in their essays to give them realization about the importance of tatabahasa
which is the grammar. For the activity, each student will be given 10 different formats
of essay that essay will be from the formal, informal, report and other formats. Then,
the students will be required to analyze those formats, the structure, the grammar
and the vocabulary used. They also have to analyze the strengths and weaknesses
from each of the essays. Based on Bernard Weiners Attribution theory, the Causal
attribution theory is applied in this activity because; it defines affecting responses to

success and failure. For example, the students will feel excited to figure out the
mistakes in the essay given and after they analyze they will be also be praised by the
motivator and therefore they will gain pride for the success so indirectly it will boost
the students motivation. This session will be handled by, Hue Chi Yin, Afifah Bt.
Hasan, Nur Shuhada Bt. Yusuff and Shazreen Bt. Abd Rahman

We have allocated time for recreational activities to ensure that the students will
refresh their body and mind. Students at the age of 12 need fun learning in order to
absorb things faster. Moreover, it will also reduce stress for the students s this activity
can help them to reduce stress as well. So in this recreation activity, we will divide the
students into 10 groups. The students will play tug of war in a river. By playing this
game, the students wont feel left behind due to lack of confidence in sport and
appearance because all will be treated equally. So Fathimath Naifa, Renee
Chelveraj, Siti Hajar Fazlina and Rosnita Bt. Hashim will manage this activity. By the
way, according to the theorist Abraham Maslows theory of need is applied in this
activity because, the physiological need which is the survival. The students need to
work together to ensure they will complete the challenge and the team leader will
also have to manage the team to lead them to complete the challenge given. Then
the second need, which is, the students will work hard to ensure they complete the
challenge before being punished to being the last team to complete the challenge.
After that, the third need, which is Need of Belongingness, is implemented when the
students listen to the team leader and the team leader will also feel loved when the
teammates are respecting them. So automatically the fourth need is accomplished
which is Need of Self esteem. The students will be more proud after completing the
challenge and the process of recognition will be accomplished here once they
completed the challenge. Finally the Need of actualization is when they complete the
challenge and they gain knowledge and being more united within each other.
Students unable to score English language paper because they feels that its not
important as they thinks that they dont have to use English but can maintain using
only mother tongue only. Unfortunately students fail to realize that English is
generally used language among foreign language speakers. When people from
different languages and country meet up together, the commonly used language will

be English. The students are lack of vocabulary and grammar understanding. They
are unable to cope with the language, as they do not use this language So, Elipse
Goh, Nor Azlin Bt. Anuar , Thanamani A/P Nadarajah , Ezza Bt. Mad Baguri and
Liow Choy Yoke will be organizing an activity with the students. All the students will
be devided into 10 groups and each group will be given a real life situation where
they are required to use English only as the medium of communication and there will
be two facilitators to observe and help them throughout the activity. Students are
required to create a dialogue based on the situation given and they are required to do
role-play with the situation given. The students will act in a certain way, as they will
accept certain role and characteristic of certain behavior. So by this activity we are
applying the Expectancy Theory. As this activity is played as a game, the Need for
Achievement by Mc Clellands theory of needs which is referred to each individuals
important in accomplishing the activity.
Mathematics is always a problem for majority of the students but it is very important
as mathematics has a wide range of economic applications, scientific, technological,
security and analysis. Students always find it difficult to learn Mathematics as its like
a problem to solve problem solving. They are not interested to do calculation so we
need to help them understand the importance of mathematic in their daily life. So Siti
Haslinda , Norazilah , Ku Nazurah , Hapyness and Fatin Nabilah will be handling this
session. They will divide the students into 10 groups and each group will be given a
situation that require them to do some calculation to enhance Mathematics
performances. The situations given are to trigger their interest and find reason to use
Mathematics in real life. So this will teach students how to evaluate solutions and
analyze methods with their understanding on how to solve a problem in calculation.
Weiners, attribution theory is applied in this session because there is a psychological
process that will lead to the psychological consequences so when the students
decide a solution for their given situation, it might be due to ability because they have
the basic knowledge about mathematic and thats why they can find solution for the
calculation. Although the students ability might be lower, when they are
encoughraged by the teachers, they will be able to do the problem solution and they
will also have confident to ask the teammates (Bruning et al., 2004).


In Malaysia, the primary science curriculum sees children as experimenters,

discoverers and problem solver but students dislike to read a lot of scientific facts.
Mostly the science teacher will have the authoritarian role so the students have the
typical perception towards the teachers where they find it boring to learn this subject.
Moreover, the students will be also facing difficulty to understand the process or the
facts. Therefore we need to ensure the students get to experiment themselves for
few important experiments so that they will remember the process easier. So
Farhana , Nurul Nuraeen , Che Nur Aina , Norwana and Vanaja who will be handling
this session. They will divide the students into 10 groups and two facilitators will
accompany each group. Students are given problems that require them to use
scientific method to overcome the problem. They are allowed to use as many
methods as they want in order to enhance their interest on the subject. They are
given a basic set of lab instrument to do their experiments. By doing this, the
students students will be able to apply what they have learned before and moreover
they will also work in the group to solve the problem as this will overcome the task
difficulty as well. Therefore the we are applying the Attribution theory because
Bernard Weiner stated it more briefly when he wrote, 'Motivation is the study of why
people think and behave as they do.' (Clark, 1997; Clark & Artiles, 2000).
Weiner will concertrate more on the motivation and behavior attribution altouhgh
there are varios motivation theories exist because, if a child is highly motivatied, they
will be changes in the attributin as well. For an example, if the child dont know how
to answer an question, they will go and search for the answer rather then keeping

he stability dimension refers to whether the cause is stable or unstable across time
and situations. If a learner believes that he failed a science exam because he lacks
ability in science, then his cause is stable, particularly if he believes that his lack of
ability in science is a permanent quality.
