The Points of Pride

March 30, 2018

Instructional Focus:

As I was doing some professional reading about behaviors over spring break, I

began to think about student autonomy. We talk a lot about teacher autonomy and

the “art” of teaching, but do we give our students enough autonomy over their

education? Do they get to drive the outcome of the most recent project you have given

them or be part of the selection process for the next report?

Consider more student autonomy and intrinsic motivation will naturally

follow…student motivation is definitely an area of focus during fourth quarter, as we look keep students engaged.
