In a world of rapidly changing knowledge and demands for new and transferable skills, classrooms are increasingly being viewed as places in which students need to learn how to learn for themselves. Central to this objective is developing students’ capacity to work independently and manage themselves as learners. This requires teachers to have a repertoire of effective strategies and structures. Learning for Themselves provides dozens of examples and templates designed for teachers in a range of school settings. The book and CD includes teacher support materials and recognises the importance of student learning preferences, thinking, goal setting and the role of independent inquiries in a classroom that promotes student self-management.
