Learner Training: Towards Improving Secondary Students' Writing Skills
Charalambous, Angeliki Constantinou
Online Submission
In recent years more emphasis has been placed on training learners to take charge of their own learning. Guided teaching is gradually decreased and more responsibility is transferred to learners themselves by giving them opportunities to develop skills and strategies and to realize their potential. This new attitude is based on the notion that it is not possible for teachers to teach everything so they better train their students to teach themselves. Learner training increases motivation, helps learners to gain abilities and knowledge that can be transferred to other subjects and assists students in developing skills for the 21st century. Also this approach guides students towards lifelong learning and how to become autonomous and independent. This paper provides a framework that focuses on developing secondary students' writing skills through learner training.
