Reflection: Student Ownership Brains....Brains...Must Have Brains - Section 1: Introduction


At this point in the year, now that students have come to know me and my expectations, I begin to create lessons that will assist students in becoming more independent in their learning and develop their problem solving skills.  The ability to be a productive, independent learner is critical for success in high school.  To provide students with ample time to practice and develop these skills, the majority of my lessons offer limited directions to the students.  I want them to work together to determine what they need to do to accomplish the learning goals.  This allows me to provide the students with only the support they need to be successful.
