KERNERSVILLE — As students progress through high school and college, the expectation is that they will take control over their learning. Self-regulated learning theory has become very popular in guiding learning and instruction to help students do just that.

Bishop McGuinness High School teacher Dr. Maria DiBenedetto has recently co-written a chapter on self-regulation and the standards in the new “Handbook of Self-Regulation of Learning and Performance” (Schunk & Greene, 2018).

The book contains chapters by several renowned scholars and experts in the field of educational psychology.

The chapter is titled “Self-regulation: An integral part of standards-based education” and provides an overview of how standards, when translated into goals, can provide teachers and students with guidance and direction in learning.
