Reflection: Intrinsic Motivation Learning The Requirements Of A Rough Draft - Section 3: Creating An Individual Plan Of Work


Students whine and complain about due dates. They always say they didn't have enough time. Such is life. It's great when we, as teachers, can have students create their own due dates so they can take more ownership of their work. While this entire paper has due dates, when they make due dates for their individual work, they are usually more motivated because it becomes more manageable for them.

Depending on the student, you may need to check in with them when they do this. Some we can trust to keep up with their own work, and others need we need to check-in with to help them out along the way. We would love students to be independent workers but with intensive projects like this paper, they need as much help as they can so breaking it down and checking in with them to see if they met minor due dates helps them meet major due dates.
