Teacher Research Topic

How can I identify what motivates my 5th grade students? I chose this topic because if I know what motivates my students, I may be able to find ways to motivate them further. I may be able to balance intrinsic and extrinsic motivation in the classroom. As a result, I will be able to more effectively meet my students’ learning needs through differentiated instruction.
