Developing Student Ownership provides validated techniques that transform students from passengers in their education to active participants. The most effective way for students to understand their role in learning is to get them to take ownership—a skill that can be directly taught and mastered. All too often, students are just doing school. They come most days, they attend class, they do most of their work—but they don’t have a clear reason why they are in class besides society requiring it of them. A student who understands their role in learning is one who knows how to apply their classroom experience to new situations, engage in self-reflection and improvement, and take responsibility for their success. This book is a roadmap for teachers to increase student motivation, and thus student achievement, by increasing student ownership. It is a comprehensive professional support for every teacher looking to increase student achievement.
