What is a self-regulated learner?   

A self-regulated learner is one who is aware of his or her own strengths and weaknesses and is guided by his or her own personally set goals and tasks. The self-regulated learner is active in his or her own learning process. Self-regulated learning strategies are actions and processes the student employs. These include self-evaluation, goal setting, planning, seeking help, practicing and memorizing, and organizing new information.

Current research suggests that students who are motivated to learn, show self-confidence in their abilities, and are self-regulating benefit from a greater sense of self-determination and demonstrate greater academic success in school. For some students self-regulation is inherent and comes naturally. For others, it does not. Therefore, learning to employ important self-regulated learning strategies is critical for the student to learn to become self-directive, independent, and self-confident in his or her learning process. Help your child become a more self-regulated learner, experiencing greater academic success through well-implemented learning strategies and intervention.
