Giving students ownership of their learning

This list is from an ASCD article in November 2008.  I think it still works for this year:

What students want from teachers:

Take me seriously

Challenge me to think

Nurture by self-respect; teach me self-discipline

Show me I can make a difference

Let me do it my way

Point me toward my goals

I do a pretty good job with these.
