Ownership of Learning offers a powerful framework to significantly accelerate student motivation and learning. This book provides teachers and leaders with the “how to” by focusing on the impact of building collaborative relationships, clarifying criteria for success, building learner capacity, embedded formative assessment, and using feedback to deepen and prove learning. The three sections in the book - Defining the Journey, Learning on the Journey, and Retracing and Extending the Journey - are used as signposts to anchor the partnering process to:

 

  •  Demonstrate how to develop the students’ role as a full-fledged partners in the learning process
  •  Offer practical steps to empower and motivate students
  •  Provide multiple examples and visuals of key ideas and steps to develop partnerships in the classroom
  •  Align to the natural teaching and learning cycle in every classroom

"Collaborating with students? Providing them with feedback and listening to the feedback they have for us? Too often we have left students out of the dialogue of learning, but those times are changing. In Partnering with Students to Build Ownership of Learning, Mary Jane O’Connell and Kara Vandas share practical and proven methods of putting students at the center of their own learning."
