Chalk Talk: Developing Self-Regulated Learners
As students advance through their schooling, they must become more independent when it comes to their academic responsibilities, including studying for tests, completing homework, using appropriate strategies for solving problems, etc. The problem is some students are not as confident in their ability to do these things and may have never been taught how to be self-regulated learners. Being a self-regulated learner not only means being accountable in terms of one’s education but also being able to motivate oneself to want to learn and do well in school. Teachers need to instruct students as to various strategies they can use for certain content and make them aware that some of these strategies can be applied to other material and in the future. Teachers should help children understand how they learn the most effectively so that students can choose the best strategies and studying methods for themselves. Students should eventually learn how to use strategies independently; for instance, if they benefit from using pneumonic devices, they can create their own pneumonics when needed.
