"Among the most influential models in contemporary behavioral science, self-determination theory (SDT) offers a broad framework for understanding the factors that promote human motivation and psychological flourishing. In this authoritative work, SDT cofounders Richard M. Ryan andEdward L. Deci systematically review the theory's conceptual underpinnings, empirical evidence base, and practical applications across the lifespan. Ryan and Deci demonstrate that supporting people's basic needs for competence, relatedness, and autonomy is critically important for virtually all aspects of individual and societal functioning." -- Résumé de l'éditeur.

Kevin never smiles at school, but he is different at home. He jumps up and down when his favorite football team scores a touchdown, and screams "CANNONBALL!" when he jumps into the swimming pool. But at school he feels that he isn't 'okay.' Other kids in his class are much quicker at putting their hands up and answering the teacher's questions, and Kevin feels that he will never catch up. One day, his reading teacher asks him to help out with the school store, and Kevin slowly begins to realise that he had really been 'a okay' all along. Through providing an insight into Kevin's thoughts, feelings and coping strategies, this picture book for ages 5-8 is a source of support for children who, like Kevin, find school difficult and feel that they are 'behind' their peers. The book, which draws on the author's experiences as the principal of an elementary school, is also the perfect springboard for discussion around difficulties at school, academic ability, self-esteem, confidence and recognising strengths.

Sometimes, doing the right thing can get you in trouble. This is a lesson James learns the hard way when he is moved to sit behind Richie. The two hit it off at first, with James sharing observations about funny habits their classmates have. That's when Richie reveals his true colors. He's sneaky, avoiding the watchful eyes of teachers and playing the part of the perfect student. As he vies for the Premier Student of the Year Award, he uses James's observations to manipulate the school's reward system and blackmail students into helping him. When James learns of his new friend's plan, he does his best to stop it but ultimately ends up getting himself in trouble. As he tries to convince other students to stand with him, he learns just how far Richie is willing to go. With a school full of seemingly oblivious teachers, the question of what to do becomes more and more complex. The assignment of a social studies project on Martin Luther King Jr. finally brings James to the realization that by delving into the past, he might be able to learn some valuable strategies for dealing with his problems in the present.
