All students deserve to be self-regulating learners and feel ownership of their successes. In this session we’ll explore how to scaffold self-regulated learning (SRL) for all students in inclusive classrooms. We will consider how educators can establish safe and supportive learning environments that foster rich forms of learning and SRL; key guidelines educators can follow when building SRL-promoting practices; and how educators can design activities and tasks that create opportunities for rich forms of learning and self- regulation.
