Autonomous Work by Pupils.
Marbeau, V.
This monograph is a report on an international discussion of the desirability of autonomous work on the part of students. The rationale for autonomous work is twofold. First, this approach should lead the pupil to think about the learning process and take an active and responsible share in it. This will promote the development of personality by cultivating the critical faculties and a sense of responsibility. Second, the autonomous approach modifies the pupil/knowledge relationship and should lead to a deeper, because more personal, acquisition of knowledge and skills. Within the parameters of these two outlined objectives, the following areas of the subject are discussed: (1) Why develop autonomy in pupils? (2) How can such autonomy be defined? (3) How can autonomy and the various forms of independent study be developed? (4) How can autonomous work be evaluated? and (5) What are the conditions for progress in this teaching method? (JD)
