Sense of Relatedness as a Factor in Children's Academic Engagement and Performance.
Furrer, Carrie; Skinner, Ellen
Journal of Educational Psychology, v95 n1 p148-62 Mar 2003
Children's sense of relatedness is vital to their academic motivation from 3rd to 6th grade. Children's reports of relatedness predicted change in classroom engagement over the school year and contributed over and above the effects of perceived control. Analyses revealed that relatedness to parents, teachers, and peers each uniquely related to students' engagement, especially emotional engagement. (Contains 83 references and 7 tables.) (GCP)
