LITERATURE AND INTEGRATIVE MOTIVATION IN THE LANGUAGE CLASSROOM

Abstract

In the language classroom, motivating students using learning materials is one of the best pathways for helping students obtain a positive outcome during the language learning process. Literary materials play an important role when teaching a foreign language. Language learning is tied up with integrative motivation, which enhances better and long term learning.
This analysis of current research looks at the positive contributions of literary materials in a language classroom and found that students taught with the aid of literary materials were likely to show integrative motivation, resulting in a more long-term and deeper learning of the target language.
This analysis demonstrates that students in language classrooms benefit from literature because literature improves their vocabulary, their ability to structure sentences, and their ability to organize various ideas and thoughts. Moreover, it reveals that literary materials and integrative motivation affect each other reciprocally.
