Abstract

The research question addressed is: how can teachers promote self-directed learning (SDL) in a high school foreign language classroom? The impetus for this Capstone was a desire to see high school language students take more control over their education. Two projects were conducted: one with a French Two class, and one with a French Three class. These projects incorporated essential elements of SDL to assess what works and does not work with SDL at the high school level. Much research has been done with SDL and adult education. This Capstone highlights how high school foreign language teachers can implement aspects of SDL into their instruction and do so with success to the benefit of their students.
