During the next couple of pages, I have written a literature review based on a third edition book written by Carl Rogers and H. Jerome Freiberg (1994) called Freedom to Learn.

Rogers and Freiberg (1994) state the over 20% if people in America move and millions of students live with only one parent, extending the idea of the family, which sometimes they will only find it in a classroom (p.06). Both authors suggest that a classroom should contain custom motivation, consequences and rewards for each of the students.
