Abstract: The "Motivation and School Learning" work addresses students' motivation and learning issues, which helps them understand the benefits of these two processes, so that the goals set by them are attained. The theme chosen by us is important in that it presents the forms of motivation and its influence on the teaching-learning process and the harmonious development of the student's personality. To be motivated is to act, to tend towards something, to do something. A student who feels no impulse or need to act is an unmotivated student, while a student who is activated or energized to act toward a goal is considered a motivated student. It is important for the pupil to show interest in school, to accomplish the school tasks and to meet the established goals. To be successful, teachers need to form a teaching-learning style that motivates students, centered on arguing their usefulness, enhancing existing skills and competences, and ensuring action. It is good for teachers to encourage students to take ambitious goals or to persuade them to accept the goals they propose, depending on the interests and skills identified.
