Deeper Learning Competencies:
Learn how to learn (a, c-e, j-k)
An agency station serves as a physical resource for students. In this secluded and comforting space, students can use resources provided to reflect and reset when they are o track. An agency station can feature visual prompts, reflective exercises, and additional reference resources.
One of the outcomes identified by Hewlett’s Deeper Learning Competencies is that students will “learn how to learn.” A self-aware learner needs to be able to identify when they have lost focus or face a challenge that is difficult to overcome. An agency station serves as a reflective space where students can develop ownership over their learning and take steps toward leveraging resources to work through whatever challenge they face.
