Independent Student Learning

Workflow Guide

My students crave independence, but they are sometimes unable to prioritize, monitor, and regulate their progress. My students are also often unable at the beginning of a school year to articulate how or where to start an assignment. This strategy is designed to give my students a model of how to manage their own workflow. Having a Workflow Guide is a good strategy to teach in Social Studies because it gives my students a step-by-step pathway to competency. This strategy is particularly well suited for middle grades because they need an increased sense of agency that allows them work independently as they prepare to transition to high school, college, and their careers.

Targeted Intervention

I use the School of One online dashboard on my computer to monitor real-time student progress on digital content. When I notice patterns of errors and/or clear misconceptions, I approach specific students for one-on-one Targeted Interventions. This strategy allows me to correct misconceptions in real time.
