Student-Led Learning

In student-led learning, the teacher is a guide and facilitator, walking around to ask reflective questions or guide students to ask their own questions.  They may also be providing demonstrations or pulling up information to support students in their explorations. Students may be sharing out work and getting feedback from their peers through a whole group setting or through a gallery walk in the classroom. There are so many opportunities for students to explore their world and take ownership of their learning process.

In this preview, Molly Foster shares some common questions and roadblocks for implementing the approach effectively, and addresses each with a practical set of strategies and tips for educators.
