Student Centered Learning
Student-Centered learning is a phrase thrown around education, and there is fluff around it. This is a foundational instructional strategy, at its core, is sound in practice. The approach to student-centered learning has become blurred. Cory Henwood joins the podcast again to break this down into a conversation about how and why to implement it.
Student-centered learning is not small-group instruction. Small group instruction is one component of student-centered learning.
“When can students get the best of me?” When they are working with me one-on-one or in a small group.
There is no correct method; there are core principles to evaluate and how to embed this style of instruction in your classroom.
Finding the right amount of scaffolding to support students but not offering too much off the bat.
It is easy to become hung up on the resources. It is an important hurdle to overcome, but it can be made simpler.
