    Promoting Independent Working in a Year 5 Class through Action Research: A Case Study

    Author:

Abstract

This article describes an action research self-study carried out with my class of ten-year-olds to enable them to work independently without constant prompting. The aims of the study were to improve the children's ability to self-regulate within a learning environment that promoted respectful relationships, rational authority and ethical care. A learning community was developed and it was found that by working with the children to share the responsibility, they were able to develop improved self-regulatory skills. The evidence suggests children were happy and respectful and chose to work hard to make their best effort.
