engaging. Middle level learners need to feel in control of something because at this age their bodies and emotions are so out of control. Giving students some sense of choice/power/control during a lesson helps them to buy into the lesson as it build intrinsic motivation. During this lesson on the life cycle of the butterfly, students will have some opportunities to have free choice. Giving this type of choice is considered procedural (for example giving them choice over the type of media they will choose to present a project). This will show up during activities like using Pixie to write a nonfiction book- Butterfly Life Cycle Story or how their butterfly model will look. They will also have a choice of how they would like to present their projects to the class.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
