Autonomy: the power to be independent and free; freedom from external control or influence. Increasing student autonomy in my classroom has led to - Classroom management is easier - The time I take to plan a lesson, or unit etc has decreased - I develop stronger relationship with my students - Teaching is easier - Students learn and retain more I know bold right…but it is true!! People ask me all the time how I do it. I teach full time, have three little kiddos at home, a husband I like spending time with, a TPT store, FB live…. etc. Do I sleep? Yes when the baby lets me…lol But as a teacher, I have time in my life for these things because I use inquiry and give my students more autonomy. It’s not working harder it is working smarter.
