After identifying a learning goal, the educator supports students as they choose the appropriate learning strategy. This process can be conducted individually, in small groups, or in whole-group instruction. These strategies can be deployed as a stand-alone activity or as part of a lesson.
Teachers usually take responsibility for choosing the appropriate learning strategy for the learning goal at hand; if students are to become more self-directed learners, its important that they take on more of the responsibility for choosing their goals and the best strategies to achieve them. Understanding common learning methods inquiry, design, debate, expression, and self-development and choosing appropriate learning strategies empowers students in their learning and self-direction.
