Giving opportunities for choice. Participants of a 5th grade class were given opportunities to choose in which order they wanted to complete their activities, while another 5th grade class was not able to choose and had to follow the schedule as prepared. They used a choice intervention with a control group. The class that was able to choose the order of their schedule showed more productivity, asked more questions, and in follow up showed that they retained the information better than the class that was given a non-negotiable schedule.
