With the right tools, gifted students can take on a journey into a lifelong adventure of self-led learning. Self-regulation offers students the freedom to understand the world and their role in it in a dynamic way. It’s the process by which students engage in appropriate actions, thoughts, feelings and behaviors, in order to pursue valuable academic goals.
In this 1-hour course, you will learn:
- The definition of self-regulation
- How to understand the obstacles your students face
- Teaching strategies for self-regulated learning
This course is aligned with 2016 ODE Teacher Competencies d, e, and NAGC Teacher Preparation Standards 1.1, 1.2, 2.1, and 5.5.
