Learning for Life
Creating Classrooms for Self-Directed Learning



May 1996 | 184 pages | Corwin
A self-directed learner takes control of his/her own learning, making decisions based on self-knowledge and personal values that support the student's learning goals. In a self-directed learning classroom, self-discipline is embedded in the classroom norms and supports learning. The authors of this book describe the characteristics of a self-directed learner, a teacher who promotes this form of education, and a school that supports teachers and students in self-directed learning.
