As students undertake an activity, the educator leads through them through a series of learning strategies that can help them consciously work toward increasing their autonomy as their ability to manage more independence increases and their capacity for self-reliance grows. This can be done individually, in small groups, or in whole-group instruction.
Self-reliance and autonomy in students is a dynamic developmental process that can be enhanced by increased awareness and experiencing of supportive strategies that help develop students' mindsets about the levels of autonomy they are capable of and comfortable having.

Please submit work examples from two students (such as links to writing, audio, images, video, or other media) that demonstrate progress toward the self-reliance and autonomy competency, including such items as evidence of student discussions on their levels of autonomy, examples and demonstrations of the autonomy-building strategies students engaged in, evidence of increases in students’ levels of self-reliance and autonomy, discussions of lessons learned from the strategies, and other relevant items.
For the two students whose work examples were included above, submit student-created reflections on their experience of the self-reliance and autonomy activities. Use the following questions as a guide (200-word limit for each reflection):
