For those who don’t know the Gestalt Community Schools, they are an outstanding set of charter schools that believe in building better communities through education; They are achieving excellent results for their students who mainly hail from low-income communities. Innovation abounds at Gestalt’s middle and high schools where students and teachers are using a rotational blended learning model that focuses on closing skill deficits in literacy and numeracy.
In this model, students rotate through 3 learning stations:
- The first is direct instruction from the teacher,
- the second is guided practice in small groups,
- and the third is independent digital practice prescribed by the classroom teacher.
