Developing self-regulated learners

This book is written by Deborah Butler, Nancy Perry and Leyton Schnellert, professors in special education and educational psychology at the University of British Columbia. Designed for educators who want to learn about self-regulated learning (SRL), and support the development of self-regulating learners, this book introduces readers to SRL, the importance of fostering SRL, and its relationships with social-emotional learning and executive functioning. Guidelines are provided for building SRL-promoting practices and designing activities and tasks that promote rich forms of learning and self- regulation. Also included in the book are strategies for integrating supports for SRL into environments and activities, and providing assessments and feedback that can empower learning.
