Standards and Competencies
This year, through two rounds of action research, I investigated the impact giving elementary aged students opportunities to make decisions regarding their work could have on their engagement with content material. As a result of my research I have created a lesson planning template that helps teachers to incorporate student-based decision making into their lessons and can be applied to any content area.

As this strategy can be applied to any content area the standards my research addresses have more to do with teaching and instructional quality, rather than content acquisition. These standards can be found below.
