Editorial Reviews

Robert Grubb
“My experience teaching the lessons to students helped me understand the importance of self-reflection. The students were able to reflect on their own abilities in learning. The opportunity to define themselves as learners is informative and empowering.”
Paige A. McGinty
"Teaching students how to be 'lifelong learners' can be realized by helping them develop a sense of responsibility for their learning. These lessons provide that opportunity for students. "
