    In an adaption of Ch. 1 from one of his books, Larry  Ferlazzo focused on intrinsic motivation, and suggested, for example,"People are more motivated and confident when they feel they have more control over their environment. Inviting students to have a voice in classroom decisions-where they sit, what day a test takes place, in what order units are studied, or even where a plant should be placed in the classroom-can help them develop that greater sense of control" (Creating Opportunities for Students to Help Make Decisions, para. 1).
