Session 03: Self-Determination, Self-Efficacy, and Self-Regulation

Summary: First, we discussed the vocabulary in the Garrin article that was unfamiliar, and you learned how knowing prefixes and suffixes could help you guess what the word might mean. Then in pairs and with the class, we discussed the meanings, differences, and similarities of self-determination, self-efficacy, and self-determination theories.
