Don’t Ask Me: Creating A Classroom of Self-Regulated Learners

Do your students drive you crazy, asking what mark they’re getting? Join two secondary teachers (English/Social Studies) for a look at how students can figure it out themselves by self-regulating their learning. Focusing on the student’s experience, we will look at what to do before, during, and after learning so that your students understand their progress in a meaningful way.


Outcomes include:

  • I can establish a collaborative, open, and real-world learning environment.
  • I can facilitate learner motivation by accessing prior knowledge.
  • I can clearly communicate learning outcomes.
  • I can provide formative feedback.
  • I can emphasize the formative use of self-assessment and reflection.
  • I can modify my teaching strategies based on the data I collect.



  • Applicable research
  • Digital materials
