Summary This qualitative study examined what secondary English teachers know about self-regulated learning and how they teach these skills in the classroom. The study includes an exploration of secondary English teachers' attitudes about self-regulated learning and discusses what these teachers are teaching to enable their students to become self-regulated learners. The barriers and benefits that these teachers experience when teaching self-regulated learning are also reported. The major themes that emerged from the analysis included: Motivating factors for teaching self-regulated learning, strategies to teach self-regulated learning, barriers encountered when teaching self-regulated learning, and teacher reported benefits when teaching self-regulated learning. Sub-themes which emerged from the analysis included: self-reflection, metacognition, cooperative learning, intrinsic motivation, and student responsibility for learning.
