LITERATURE SUPPORT FOR THE INTERVENTION

Study by Linnenbrink-Garcia, Patall, and Messersmith (2012)


Focus is on determining what creates situational interest (SI) or the engagement of students in a
lesson. SI affects how much information students will retain from a teaching.
Study Findings: there are four main factors which promote & increase SI:
1. Perceived student choice
2. Instructor approachability
3. Opportunities for student involvement
4. Student connections to real life
Connection to our presentation:
1. Students got to choose how to set up their BINGO cards
2. We were friendly and supportive
3. BINGO game got students involved
4. Sharing stories and ideas relating marijuana to real life was encouraged
