Then and Now. The Theory of Choice.
Glasser, William
Learning, v25 n3 p20-22 Nov-Dec 1996
The choice theory holds that people can control only their own behavior, and that all people need a sense of belonging, freedom, power, and fun. This article argues that teachers must recognize that these needs motivate student behavior, and describes how a middle school turned its discipline and achievement problems around by using choice theory.
