Example text

Those students who are high in self-regulation are typically better liked by their teacher and their peers (Reif, 2003). They are easier to get along with and easier to teach. The low self-regulation students make our jobs more difficult while the high self-regulation students make it easier. Is it any wonder, then, that the high-in-self-regulation students do better in school? They not only have the advantage of some internal skills and abilities, they also get more positive feedback, praise, and direction from their teachers.

And that, after all, is one of our most important responsibilities as classroom teachers; to teach students how to be successful learners when they are no longer with us. In addition to ensuring that we have a classroom management system in place that encourages and teaches self-regulation, we need to consider our own communication styles and the specific interactions we have with students who are lacking skills. Students with poor self-regulation abilities will not develop an understanding of appropriate behaviors and choices solely through nagging, reminders, and verbal reprimands.

David Coleman, one of the authors of the Common Core Standards, has stated that the Common Core is “focused and concentrated on what matters most”. This focus on thinking, depth, and integration of ideas will require that we organize our classroom instruction and curricular resources differently. If we require critical thinking and depth of understanding, we must devote the time necessary to teach students how to do those things. Again, this may require that we set aside traditional ways of organizing our schools and classrooms so that students are given the time and resources to think critically and develop depth of understanding.
