This course is organized into three units with two lessons each. As you work through the course, you will be asked to:

  • 1 Identify their strengths and weaknesses regarding student autonomy.
  • 2 Summarize the data on the benefits of a student autonomous classroom
  • 3 Analyze how much assistance to give to students given a checklist about their students’ abilities and skills.
  • 4 Construct a unit promoting student autonomy in the classroom.
  • 5 Evaluate your unit.
  • 6 Revise your unit.

You will also be asked to track your learning using a scale. This is a shared Google Doc among participants that can be edited. However, when adding where you are at, inserting a comment will be the best option so that the scale remains readable by all.
