Facilitating Students' Autonomy.
Sediva, Galina; Koslova, Monika
The paper focuses on facilitating students' autonomy. Though the main observed difference in the classroom often seems to be the student's level of language knowledge, this may have its roots in other reasons besides ability (previous teaching, motivation, etc.). Therefore, learners have not only different cultural and social backgrounds but also different learning styles and learning preferences. In a large heterogeneous class, one of the ways to facilitate students' autonomy is to give them a chance to become more responsible and independent. (Author/Ask)
