With educational implementations being utilized in schools, allowing students to make choices in their own learning is becoming a more difficult and daunting task. The purpose of my research is to discover new methods for creating a more student-choice centered curriculum in an elementary setting. I plan to use my research to gain new knowledge on how student-centered classrooms can affect student achievement and behavior. I distributed surveys that asked teachers to read statements that related to student choice in the classroom and respond with the level to which they agreed or disagreed with the statement. The results of my study found that many teachers in the surrounding area believe that giving students choice in their learning can lead to higher achievement and improved behavior.
