Blending best practices of the past with innovative Student-centered Learning (SCL)
Student-centered instruction [SCI] is an instructional approach in which students influence the content, activities, materials, and pace of learning. This learning model places the student (learner) in the center of the learning process. The instructor provides students with opportunities to learn independently and from one another and coaches them in the skills they need to do so effectively.
Student-centered Learning Examples:
Roundtable Discussion
Minute Papers
Peer Instruction
Quick Thinks
Open-ended Problem Solving

CCSS shifts from a traditional “content coverage” model of instruction to one that focuses on enduring, conceptual understandings and the content that supports this. This approach will enable students to spend less time on factual recall and more time on inquiry-based learning of essential concepts.
