Self-Regulation in the Classroom
Helping Students Learn How to Learn
All these terms are attributes of self-regulated learning, which is the ability to manage impulses, stay focused on tasks through completion, and develop a sense of autonomy in learning to achieve academic success.
In Self-Regulation in the Classroom, Richard M. Cash translates research and theory into easy-to-implement strategies and ideas you can use to help students--with special needs and without--become self-directed learners, including ways for them to:
- increase their engagement in learning
- boost their confidence
- avoid meaningless distraction
- develop effective study habits
- set and achieve goals
- use failure as a learning tool
- reflect and relax
The teacher and student forms, charts, and lists in the book are downloadable for use in your classroom. Also available is a free study guide to be used in PLCs and book study groups.
"Rich in research and theory but practical enough for Monday morning classroom activities, this book is for anyone looking to increase student engagement and help students regulate their thinking and behavior."--Nathan Warner, M.Ed., assistant principal
