CLASSROOM STRATEGIES

Self-Directed, Independent and Interdependent Learning

Thematic units on this web site include these basic strategies which students need in order to work independently, interdependently and self-directed.  The first few weeks of each school year are spent learning these strategies.  While some teachers balk at taking the time to teach these new procedures, the students are learning them while proceeding with the research for their first unit.  It doesn't take long to learn these new habits, and once the students have learned them, my advice is "Get out of their way!  They will work almost completely independently once they know the routine.  First we will review the basic strategies used regularly in the unit plans.  Following these basic strategies you will find links to many more ideas online.
