Have Students Self-Manage Their Academic Performance
Joseph, Laurice M.; Konrad, Moira
Intervention in School and Clinic, v44 n4 p246-249 2009
Self-management skills are critical to achieving academic success, yet students with disabilities often fail to execute these skills because they have not learned appropriate strategies. After a thorough review of the professional literature, several conversations with educators, and observations of students, the authors identified many effective self-management tools. Given that students are ultimately responsible for applying these strategies, the purpose of this article is to provide students with 20 self-management strategies that they can use to improve the quality and quantity of their academic work. Certainly, educators and parents will need to teach students how to apply these strategies, but with proper instruction (i.e., modeling, opportunities for practice, and continuous feedback), students can begin to take more and more responsibility for their own academic outcomes. This list is not exhaustive but represents a range of options that can be used across a variety of settings and skills.
