Pathway to Stewardship
A student self-assessment to guide learning at IslandWood and beyond
Theory of Action:
When students know the progression of learning they can plan for personal learning targets, both now and in the future. Student planning for their next step in learning can positively affect motivation and attachment to task. Student self-assessment helps educators to personalize instructional decisions, goal-setting, and reflection on learning and progress.
Alignment to Washington best practices:
Students can articulate the learning targets;
Students know the progression of learning;
Students access the resources to be successful.
