Developing Independent Learners

Developing Independent Learners

Last week in the 1-3 PLC, the teachers engaged in a discussion of how to help students complete works in a timely manner. Ms. Hanley suggested a strategy that she has been using that asks the students to reflect on their own engagement with questions such as “Did I start on time?” “How many times did the the teacher have to redirect me?” “How long did it take me to finish?” "What did I learn from this work?". Asking the students to reflect on and document their work habits is helping them to become more independent learners. I shared this article with our staff this week. It outlines similar ideas about how to develop independent learners.
