Research topic: A Narrative Exploration of Excluded Pupil's Motivational Histories: Using a Qualitative approach to Self-Determination Theory

My research is an exploration into the motivation for learning of pupils who have been excluded from school. I have selected a narrative design to investigate the complex nature of motivation for learning by investigating how a pupil’s motivational journey has resulted in their exclusion and lack of engagement with their education.
