A New Companion to Leaders of Their Own Learning Puts Students in Charge of Their Learning and Growth

Five years after the publication of Leaders of Their Own Learning, EL Education is back with a new companion guide to help you tackle the common challenges of student-engaged assessment. This unique, student-centered approach to assessment equips and compels students to understand goals for their learning and growth, track their progress toward those goals, and take responsibility for reaching them.

EL Education has more than 25 years of experience supporting school transformation through student-engaged assessment. With their new book, The Leaders of Their Own Learning Companion, they have harvested the best tools and wisdom from schools across the country to help you hone student-led assessment practices in your classroom and school.

  • Identifies the common challenges of implementing each of the eight interrelated student-engaged assessment practices from Leaders of Their Own Learning, and provides strategies and tools for tackling them
  • Offers practical tips for school leaders
  • Deepens your learning with 46 videos and an online toolbox

If you already use practices from Leaders of Their Own Learning, this book will help you sharpen your work. If you don't yet use those practices, this book can stand alone as the perfect introduction and guide. The Leaders of Their Own Learning Companion is designed for teachers and leaders of all grade levels.

"Once again, another book from EL Education that reminds us what engagement and student ownership of learning can really mean." Larry Rosenstock , Founder and CEO, High Tech High

"We believe in student-engaged assessment; we believe in teacher-engaged assessment" says Cherisse Campbell, the Principal of Amana Academy in Alpharetta, Georgia, as she describes the mindsets and structures that foster and sustain continuous improvement of student-engaged assessment practices.
