 The Autonomous Learner Model

“The goal of the model is to facilitate the
growth of students as independent, self-
directed learners, with the development of
skills, concepts, and positive attitudes
within the cognitive, emotional, social, and
physical domains (Betts & Kercher, 1999,
p.43.)”
              A.L.M.

TFSD Policy:
– If you take classes as part of the GT program,
  during the school day, you will not need to
  pay for them.

– If you take classes that are already offered by
  the school you will need to pay for them
    The Course tuition is $50
             Goals
             Time Enough
No doubt there will be times when you are
  waiting for the next lesson…these are your
  chances for real genius.
To know what you want and how to get it
  takes learning from people who know how
  to use goals. We can help with that.
Filling empty spaces with goal achieving will
  take you far.
        An Invitation
Some people are content with allowing others to organize
 and run their learning. We suspect you are not one of
 them.


  You are invited to plan and experience
                  schooling
            on your own terms.
