FC: The Design Quality of Choice

1: "Providing choice is a means of satisfying the drive for autonomy, and as Pink demonstrates, the drive for autonomy is a powerful force with regard to intrinsic motivation." Engaging Students, Phil Schlechty, p. 92

2: "When students have some degree of control over what they are doing, they are more likely to feel committed to doing it. This doesn't mean students should dictate school curriculum, however. Schools must distinguish between giving students choices in what they do and letting them choose what they will learn." Phil Schlechty

3: Choice in Product

4: Play Ball!!! Please complete this assignment. As part of a promotion, you have been put on a committee to select a band to perform after an upcoming Atlanta Braves game. The only guideline you have been given by the Braves is that your selection should help increase attendance at the game. Your committee has narrowed the choices down to four bands. Choose the band you will nominate to play after the game. Write a five-sentence paragraph that names and justifies your opinion. Hint: You may want to go watch these bands on YouTube! | John Fogerty | Black Eyed Peas

5: This make-believe assignment shows how Choice could be embedded in a school English assignment. The assignment requires that students study four different musical acts to complete a legitimate English assignment [five-sentence paragraph]. By giving students Choice, the teacher has improved the chances that students will engage in the lesson. | FuseboxPoet | Brad Paisley
