Question description

Self-determination theory suggests students’ academic motivation at school can be understood in terms of three fundamental human needs—autonomy, competence, and relatedness— that are essential for optimal functioning, growth and integration, and social development and personal well-being. For your initial post: 

  • Think back to your middle and high school years. Briefly describe how your school fostered a sense of autonomy, competence, and relatedness.
  • Identify any trends in self-determination that were present at the time you were in school and proved effective in fostering positive results.
  • Describe general areas of weakness in terms of these three needs. Indicate what an ideal school that satisfies young people’s fundamental needs might look like.
  • Lastly, examine the roles that parents, teachers, and schools have in fostering an environment to meet these needs.
