Analysis of student-tutor coaching dialogs suggest that good human
tutors attend to and attempt to influence the motivational state of learners.
Moreover, they are sensitive to the social face of the learner, and seek to mitigate
the potential face threat of their comments. This paper describes a dialog
generator for pedagogical agents that takes motivation and face threat factors
into account. This enables the agent to interact with learners in a socially appropriate
fashion, and foster intrinsic motivation on the part of the learner,
which in turn may lead to more positive learner affective states.
