Student-Owned, one of the principles of our student-centered learning framework, is students understanding how to get “smarter” by applying effort strategically to learning tasks in various domains and content areas. They have frequent opportunities to direct and to reflect and improve on their own learning progression toward college and career ready standards with the help of formative assessments that help them understand their own strengths and learning challenges. Students take increasing responsibility for their own learning, using strategies for self-regulation when necessary. Students also support and celebrate each other’s progress and experience a sense of commitment and belonging to the learning group.
