The author presented the concept of self-regulated learning (SRL) as a method to encourage students to become lifelong learners. A review of literature showed the need for lifelong learners. The literature revealed the theories behind SRL in education. In addition, the literature demonstrated that the components of SRL can be taught to students as young as the primary grades. This author developed a presentation that provided information for elementary educators; specifically intermediate educators, about SRL and how to establish a high SRL environment in their classrooms. Also addressed was the creation of collaborative communities as a support system for the teachers who are promoting SRL.
