Shifting Instruction from Teacher-Directed to Student-Centered
Saturday, April 4th, 9:45am - 11:00am - Session I
This session will begin with a discussion of the foundational aspects of classroom culture that support student-centered environments, and the intersection between student identity and curriculum. Participants will then explore small, medium, and large moves teachers can make to support student agency and student-centered learning experiences. Presenters will share case studies, examples, and strategies that increase student ownership and make learning tasks more meaningful. At the end of the session, participants will select an entry point that resonates with them, set one goal, and create an action plan for their classrooms.
