Creating a Student-Centered Classroom

We’re all familiar with the traditional classroom model: a teacher stands at the front of the room imparting knowledge while students listen quietly at their desks. We’re also familiar with the reality of the situation; as the lecture progresses, a scan of the room often reveals glazed eyes, unsolicited conversation, and, now more than ever, the surreptitious tapping of fingers across a mobile screen.

The Pros and Cons of Unschooling

Most parents love to see their children engaged in intellectual activities that interest them, whether it’s reading a historical novel, creating a web page, learning about the physics of space travel, or something else entirely. But some parents take this to a whole new level by forgoing traditional schooling and instead letting their children choose what they learn. This approach is often referred to as “unschooling.” What is unschooling? Unschooling is similar to home schooling in that children learn at home but, rather than being taught by their parents, they essentially teach themselves.
