The purpose of this study is to examine, both teachers’ attitude towards motivation in school and teachers’ description of how they work with pupils’ motivation. A particular interest is directed towards pupils who have difficulties motivating themselves for their schoolwork. The survey is based on ten qualitative e-mailinterviews with teachers in schoolyear 1-6, all qualified in each subject they teach. The result of the study shows that the teachers find motivation essential for pupils learning and how different strategies are used to motivate their pupils. The strategies used by the teachers largely agree with the theories presented in the theory section, which involves creating participation, context and a sense of competence for pupils learning. Lastly, the results are discussed in relation to the theories described, and for a didactic significance.
