ETp 1 asks the question: Why are we so wrapped up with teaching? Shouldn’t we be more concerned with learning? It serves as an introduction to the series and outlines the general shift in focus that learner coaching advocates.
ETp 2 offers ways in which we can encourage our students to read and listen outside the classroom.
ETp 3 suggests that speaking and self study are not mutually exclusive. It has ideas for how to practise speaking outside of class time.
ETp 4 tackles independent goal setting and self-monitoring of progress. This is the first of the ‘metacognitive’ topics and starts to unpick the elements behind autonomous learning.
ETp 5 looks at how learners can take the ‘motivational controls’ to identify, monitor and maintain the forces that drive their independent learning.
ETp 6 rounds up the series by taking a look inside a classroom where learner coaching is going on and summarising with a detailed description of the coaching philosophy.
We hope that you find them interesting.
