    Greetings to each of you! I just left a K classroom where I am just beginning to coach/mentor a first-year teacher and she is looking for ways to intrinsically motivate her students. Her classroom links meaningful relationships, social-emotional learning, and classroom management as she uses a community model of discipline rather than a competitive model. What are some strategies she might consider to help her students motivate themselves intrinsically to be and do their best?

    We are beginning to study this topic as well and are exploring research by Niemiec and Ryan.  We are reading their article titled, "Autonomy, competence, and relatedness in the classroom: Applying self-determination theory to educational practice".
