How do I self-pace?
Three easy steps to start!
Self-pacing allows students to be fully engaged and focused on learning meaningful science, not meeting deadlines.
Students have control over their learning and once they master a concept, they can move on.
Teachers spend time interacting with students instead of grading busy work and rushing to finish a lecture before the bell rings.
Setting up a self-paced unit takes some organization, but once you get going, the class will run itself!
Step One: Get Organized
Make copies of student work packets, rubrics, and extension activities.
Create spaces in your room for independent work, partner work, lab work, and whole class discussion.
