Learner Agency: Managing Self



WALT show an understanding of what is means to "managing self"

Today we talked about the importance of managing ourselves and how it can help with our learning.  It is a Key Competency that relates to our learning and supports the way we learn.

The Ministry of Education gives a brief description about what it means......

        This competency is associated with self-motivation, a “can-do” attitude, and with students seeing themselves as capable learners. It is integral to self-assessment.
       Students who manage themselves are enterprising, resourceful, reliable, and resilient. They establish personal goals, make plans, manage projects, and set high standards. They have strategies for meeting challenges. They know when to lead, when to follow, and when and how to act independently.
First we talked about what we though being able to manage ourselves meant.....
Motivation and Enthusiasm, Impulsivity, Behaviour, Belongings, 
Goal Setting and Next Learning Steps, Challenges, 
We then started putting together ideas about what that might look like at different levels.  We used the levels below to help us.
