Overview

The ultimate goal of schooling is nurturing independent learners, students able to monitor their own learning. Teachers hope students will apply their skills flexibly, generalizing them, discussing them, and teaching them to others. Yet present school curricula are often inadequate for promoting such growth. The authors critique current education systems, noting problems in helping children acquire and apply skills, and provide a theoretical framework for fostering self-regulation and independence. Some existing programs do make students more independent. Readers will learn about them, and learn to implement these programs to cultivate successful, independent learners.
