Supporting teachers to support students

Our mission is to conduct research dedicated to understanding classroom environments that support the motivation of under-represented and historically marginalized students in the state of Oklahoma and beyond. Specifically, our research focuses on supporting teachers, including identifying beliefs and practices that facilitate a successful learning environment for all students. 

Making an impact

in the classroom and beyond
We are committed to making research accessible to educators on the front lines and translating it in such a way that it can be put into immediate classroom practice. Our resources are designed and packaged with K-12 educators in mind, including the convenient, one-page Motivation Minutes that address timely topics related to supporting student motivation and provide practical action steps.
