  • Autonomy:Adolescents long for independence. They want to feel as though they have a voice and that their voice is being heard.
  • Competence:Adolescents need to feel that they are good at doing things. They can think, they can create, they solve problems and they can understand. They need to feel worthwhile and as productive members of the school community.
  • Relationships:Peer relationships rule their lives. Adolescents need to feel connected all day, everyday to other adolescents.
