Student Centered Approach

6th grade teacher and student

The student centered approach is about personalized learning-- teaching to the individual and using alternative methods if something isn't working. Desks may be arranged so students can easily collaborate on projects and/or there may be flexible seating options. The student centered approach gives students a greater sense of control as they are provided opportunities to lead learning activities, participate in discussions, problem solve (evaluate, analyze, and generate hypotheses), reflect on what and how they're learning, and learn anytime and anywhere using apps like Moby Max, Khan Academy, SmartyAnts, and Prodigy Math.
