This paper reports a quantitative research, to study Effects of Interactive Teaching Methods in fostering Students Motivation to learn at secondary school level. The research was framed in accordance the behavioral perspective. Direct or formal observation by using motivational inventory was used as main method for data collection. Only X graders students were taken as population. Two groups of Classroom size were selected randomly from the population as sample then randomized in the two groups. Obtained data was analyzed quantitatively by employing SPSS. ANOVA was the selected statistic for making inferences. It was found that interactive teaching methods played a vital role in fostering students’ motivation for learning in and outside the class as they stimulated students’ curiosity and used their interest. On the other hand, traditional teaching methods did not have any opportunity or potential inspiration that might foster students’ motivation as the methods did not let them work independently and interact with other students. The data suggests that interactive methods have more opportunities of using motivational strategies for fostering students’ motivation for learning that teacher can use in the classroom than the traditional one.
