Together with their educators, students learn to make decisions and accept the consequences of their decisions. This makes them responsible and capable of evolving as they decide how to build their daily, weekly, and monthly commitments to complete their learning plan.
This corresponds to their personal goals, while collaborating with their educators on the date to turn in projects, and setting a date to complete their course, among others. During this process, students develop the autonomy to plan their time.
Specific daily planning develops goal setting abilities, organization, work effectiveness, decision making through prioritization, responsibility, and accountability. As students grow in autonomy, they start planning their week, month, year, and eventually their lives. Planning and having goals develop intrinsic motivation as students discover how hard they can push themselves and how far they can go.
