Student-Driven Learning: Small, Medium, and Big Steps to Engage and Empower Students
Harper, Jennifer; O'Brien, Kathryn
Stenhouse Publishers
Teachers know that their students love to explore and learn. But, how do we make this possible with thirty students, with different needs, learning styles, and backgrounds, all in one small room with one teacher in the class? Designed to help teachers reflect on their current teaching practice, "Student-Driven Learning" suggests small shifts, medium-sized ideas, and big changes that can be made to encourage student engagement through flexible, student-centered learning. Experiential learning that is student-driven fosters autonomy and shifts the focus from the knowledge and influence of the teacher to the experiences of the students. "Student-Driven Learning" helps teachers introduce opportunities for students to learn their own way, to take initiative, and to experience, wonder, and create.
