Continuing the focus on Self-Directed Learning, this post takes a gander at a recommended cycle (cycle - geddit?) of SDL:

  • Assess the demands of the task
  • Evaluate own knowledge and skills
  • Plan an approach
  • Apply strategies
  • Monitor progress
  • Reflect and Adjust strategies

For my money, individual lessons coulda woulda shoulda replicate this cycle to embed these aspects.

For instance - after the welcomes, learning objective and snappy opening, a junior school lesson could segue naturally from prior knowledge to task plan to plenary reflections and next steps.

SDL cycle. Right? 

Just imagine if that was done over and over and over again.
