This is a learning center on why teachers use learning centers or stations. Learning centers or stations teach students to take responsibility for their own learning. There are 24 photos (flashcard size) of a variety of centers for students to use to explore different centers. Common core standards for speaking and listening are stressed by providing a structured conversation. A “before” activity introduces the concept or idea which will be explored. This may be used as a mini lesson. The “Thinking Mode” is the main part of the scripted learning center. The “after” activity establishes a connection to the concept or idea. There is a graphic organizer for students to explore how their learning has grown, is growing, and will grow. This is the first in a series of scripted learning centers, which will introduce a variety of ways to think.
