Teaching Tip Tuesday: How to Prepare Students to Work Independently
Acknowledge what’s new in the classroom such as larger networks of classmates via social media.
Students don't always need you for an answer. Sometimes they just need you to guide them to the an answer.
What's easy to you, maybe brand new and amazing to someone else.
Let students know they won't know all the answers, but they can connect with people to get the answers and put a plan together.
Working independently sometimes means working with others. Knowing when to ask for help and who to ask is just as important.
