Dr. Katherine McKnight has a 100% success rate in achieving academic gains with her unique, centers-based approach. Elementary schools have long used learning centers (also known as "rotations") but middle and high school teachers have unique challenges. So Dr. McKnight worked with teachers all over the country to develop collaborative learning centers designed specifically for grade 4-12 learners. In this book readers can explore the research that prompted the creation of the LLC model for big kids, and learn how to start using it in their own classrooms. Read about the four foundational centers that are integral to the model. Find out how to set up additional centers in order to customize the LLC model for any content-area classroom. Learn to create developmentally appropriate tasks that automatically align instruction to standards/skills based assessment, increase student engagement, and allow you to cover more content and skill-development in less time. Avoid discipline problems with self-directed activities that provide the independence students crave with the guidance they need. Resources, teacher tips, and sample book lists are included.
