Do your students need more scaffolding and support before they can succeed with project-based learning and student-directed learning experiences? Teach them the metacognitive, mindset, and organizational skills they need to feel confident taking charge of their learning!

Through this 10-lesson unit, students will experiment with approaches that help them meet the following goals:
  1. I am in control of my own learning.
  2. I view myself as a life-long learner.
  3. I cultivate curiosity and ask good questions.
  4. I take initiative in exploring topics I’m curious about and solving problems.
  5. I set my own goals for learning.
  6. I have a plan to make sure I meet my goals.
  7. I know how to persevere when I hit setbacks.
  8. I connect with like-minded people around my interests.
  9. I celebrate my own learning and progress.
  10. I use my talents to take charge of my future.
These lessons are designed to be no-prep or minimal prep. You don’t have to master any of these skills yourself before introducing them to students, as you’ll be learning alongside each other. Included are:
  • A teacher’s guide (1 page per lesson): This tells you how to prepare and gives you the key ideas taught in the lesson.
  • An editable slideshow presentation to guide you and your students through each lesson: Teaching the concepts and introducing activities to students is super simple: just follow the prompts on each slide in PowerPoint! 110 slides are included, all with professionally designed graphics. All video clips are embedded in the slides so you can play them offline and won’t have problems with website blockers.
  • A 10-page student self-reflection journal in both printable and typable formats: The length of the journal depends on the unit, but the format is designed to minimize printing and paper use with no filler, fluff, or half blank pages. You can also assign the journal to students in your LMS (such as Google Classroom) and keep everything digital.
