LEARNER IN THE CONTEXT OF THINKING SKILLSREALITIES AND CHALLENGES FROM CLASSROOM
Keywords:autonomy; critical thinking; 21st century skills.
Education must to prepare for successful lives as adult citizens. In
order to achieve that huge challenge, schools need to have
clarity about their roles, about the patterns of future needs, about
the teachers needs to selling the learning and making it
irresistible.One of the most common criticisms aimed at young
learners new to the workplace is that they lack initiative. They
cannot solve problems for themselves and constantly need to be
told what to do. So, the important job of schools is to ensure that
children feel that they are responsible for their development and
that it is thay who have the power to control their own lives. The
majority of children who struggle within the system do so because
of an inability to understand their own feelings and a
fundamental lack of self-worth.The main objective of the research
was to identify the degree of autonomy of the adolescent students
from the studied high school classes. At the same time, the aim
was to ascertain to what extent the teachers contribute to the
construction and stimulation of the autonomy of the students, by
studying the term of autonomy from the perspective of the image
that the students and teachers have.
