This paper aims to answer the question: “How does student choice, goal setting and student conferencing impact student motivation to continue learning in a Montessori classroom?” The previous research has shown that choice is more motivational for students than no choices. Researchers have different opinions on what the options should look like to be most effective. This research compares these and sees what is most effective with the data. New and older research was used in conjunction with the foundations of the Montessori method to see what fits seamlessly to implement without much effort. The findings are the right combination of research methods and the Montessori method.
