Summary "While every teacher's goal is to help students become independent thinkers, determining exactly how to lead students toward self-sufficiency can be a challenge. This straightforward resource invites teachers to reflect on their philosophy of teaching and learning, and helps identify the key ingredients for creating a classroom that promotes student success and independence. Teachers will discover how to build on student strengths and interests and provide authentic learning experiences. The book includes checklists, examples, and tips, and shows readers how to: identify practices that hinder independence as well as those that foster student self-sufficiency; engage learners so they can contribute information about how and what they want to learn; promote development of good work habits, self-motivation, resiliency, and peer-to-peer problem solving; strengthen students' critical thinking and inquiry skills and incorporate differentiation and formative assessments."--Publisher's website.
