Homework Worksheets Designed to Promote Learner Autonomy


Developing learner autonomy can be a long and arduous journey but it is what language educators aspire to achieve. Discover a simple tool that streamlines learning and self-assessment and prompts learners to take ownership of learning by examining their own comprehension, identifying areas for improvement and setting goals for each learning task. With a simple worksheet and its variations, students could develop learner autonomy and metacognitive skills in a systematic and effective way. With proper guidance to use the worksheet, students can self-assess learning progress, foster higher order thinking and set action plans for further learning and background knowledge building in self-directed learning. The tool is versatile to be also used in class and tailor it to students of different levels to retrieve real-time student-generated data so as to effectively provide formative and summative feedback and adapt instruction.
