- Competence - Creating structured opportunities for stud nest to see their progress in reading and writing by comparing work, showing what they have successfully done and where they need yet to go.
- Relatedness - Using a low-stakes opportunities for students to use their reading and writing to connect with, and receive feedback from others (teachers, family, friends).
- Valuable for future goals - Students seeing it as relevant for their lives and for their future goals
As you think about your daily instruction, reflect on how you are using these 4 components to make learning engaging and relevant for students.
