What is a learning center? Learning centers are designated activities that provide an engaging way for students to work independently of the teacher in small groups, pairs, or individually to reinforce and extend classroom learning. Learning centers for middle school students are designed with the middle-level student in mind.

Other things to consider when using centers: Frequency Number of students per group Number of centers in a rotation Amount of time for each rotation All depend on the specific needs of each class

11
Always post a rotation chart so that students know where to go and what to do in each station GROUP ROTATION 1 ROTATION 2 ROTATION 3 ROTATION 4 1 TRCI 2 RCIT 3 CITR 4 ITRC Centers: Teacher Reading Computer Independent

Today we will model a four group rotation Center #1 RTI (Response to Intervention) Center #2 Close Reading Center #3 Meaningful Discussions Depth of Knowledge questioning Center #4 Assessment/Technology
