Given choices in how and what they learn, student-center learning encourages students to thrive from a direct connection between their own interests and classroom-based learning. Student-centered learning embodies Meaningful Student Involvement by ensuring required content is mastered through Student/Adult Partnerships.
Used to driven classroom activities, student-driven learning can be utilized throughout all grade levels and across all content areas. Rather than simply dumping learning responsibilities directly on students right away though, teachers should gradually and increasingly invest in student capacity in order to ensure their knowledge and skills. The Meaningful Student Involvement Learning Process can help ensure the success of this approach.
