Kathleen McClaskey's insight:

Justin shares 5 ways to create learner-centered classrooms. What a great way to start the new year by putting the learner at the center!

 

1. A student-centered classroom allows students to be an integral part of the assessment development process.

 

2. A student-centered classroom focuses on finding solutions to real-world problems.

 

3. A student-centered classroom is not about what the teacher is doing or what the teacher has done; it's about what the students are doing and what the students can do in the future.

 

4. A student-centered classroom embraces the notion that there are multiple ways to accomplish an individual task.

 

5. A student-centered classroom firmly believes that there is a partnership and a strong level of trust between educators and students.

Kathleen McClaskey's insight:

Introducing a set of four videos that demonstrate student-centered assessments.

 

"What does student-centered assessment look like in the classroom? How do students benefit from this type of assessment? Why do teachers implement these practices in their classrooms? The Students at the Center project, in conjunction with Dr. Heidi Andrade, Ed.D. and the students and teachers from IS 223 (Brooklyn, NY), produced this suite of videos to begin to answer these questions for those wishing to implement more student-centered approaches in the classroom, school, district, or beyond."

Student-Centered Learning Model Where Competencies Drive Learning

Last month, I had the opportunity to visit three schools in Detroit run by Michigan’s Education Achievement Authority (EAA). I’ll be sharing what I saw and…
Kathleen McClaskey's insight:

Chris Sturgis shares a model of student-centered learning run by  Michigan's Education Acheivement Authority who are charged with transforming persistently lowest achieiving schools. Read how competencies drive learning in this model but first a look at the five pillars this model is build on.

 

The EAA describes their approach as student-centered in which “pedagogy, assessments, support systems and culture are refocused to facilitate student progress organized around mastery instead of age and seat time." Their model is build on five pillars:

 

> Students are grouped by readiness, not by grade.

> Students create and assume ownership for their respective personalized learning and success paths and are able to communicate their progress relative to their individualized learning goals.

> Students are allowed to work at their own pace, using a blended delivery system, to master rigorous standards to ensure they graduate college, career, and next-generation ready.

> Students provide evidence of mastery through relevant performance tasks and common assessments.

> Continuous feedback is provided to students, teachers, administrators and parents through the teaching and learning and the data warehouse.
