"When students decide how they might like to practice a skill, develop essential knowledge, or demonstrate a learning goal, they are practicing independent decision-making. This means they are reflecting on both their needs, their strengths, and their interests. It also means they have to determine how they will know whether a choice they made was successful, and whether they would make the same choice next time. "
"...offering them purposeful options and allowing them to help make decisions throughout the project goes a long way toward creating buy-in and increasing their motivation."
