To prevent children from being left behind, educators must create goals that are integrated into the skills-building process, not just based on rewarding success. This program illustrates the impact of both approaches on young learners, monitoring their levels of motivation and confidence. Showing how learning-oriented students take on projects based on a desire to expand their abilities-while performance-oriented kids shy away from anything truly challenging-the program demonstrates the importance of autonomy, or letting a child explore his or her own choices. One experiment highlights the negative effects of intrusive parental pressure. (42 minutes)
