Chalk Talk: Centering in on the Students
Traditional educational practices call for the teacher to stand in front of the class, lecture them and maybe ask some questions, and give students independent seatwork. Today, this may not be the best way for all children to learn and be engaged in the content. It can be intimidating for teachers to run a student-centered classroom, as they fear that chaos can ensue. However, if they set clear, concise guidelines and rules and design the learning activities so that they are engaging and meaningful, student-centered instruction can work and may be the ideal approach. Several traditional educational theorists, including Jean Piaget and Lev Vygotsky, believed in student-centered instruction, and it is being increasingly used today. An example that is popular is classroom centers, where small groups of students rotate to each one and perform various activities. As long as teachers oversee the activities, student-centered instruction can be a great approach.
