PD Session: Fostering Independence in Learners

Presented by Dave Budas

Presenting last on October 19, 2015 as part of the Sylvania Fall Inservice Day. Next presentation to be announced!

From the ad: “Tired feet? Sore throat? Lower back pain from standing all day. Join Dave Budas to learn the cure for these minor ailments. Create a classroom environment where students become responsible for their learning and are taught the skills to learn independently. Creating a classroom that fosters student independence will free you up to target individual or groups of students needs. It’ll also do wonders for that sore throat and achy back. Side effects may include increased satisfaction from you and your students, increased learning, and a positive attitude.”

This session is designed to be a workshop on independent learning. Teachers will leave this workshop with lesson ideas for their classroom. Dave Budas will share examples of lessons that foster independent learning. These examples will cover a wide range of skills, activities, and subjects. Teachers will then begin to develop a lesson they can use in their classroom.
