  3. A Learner-Centered Classroom Requires Students to Have New Skills  One of the basic facts that all teachers know about the learning process is: the one who does the work does the learning. But being able to successfully do the work in a learner-centered classroom will require most students to advance their learning skills.
  4. Areas where students will likely need our help in developing their learning skills: Learning how to learn on their own. Developing the communication skills needed to collaborate with others. Teaching others.
  5. Making presentations. Developing lifelong learning skills. Developing their metacognitive skills— knowing what they know, don’t know or misunderstand.
  6. Forms of learner-centered classroom organization, procedures and physical structure  Classroom Management • is “the actions and strategies teachers use to solve the problem of order in classrooms” (Doyle, 1986)  Effective teachers also use rules, procedures, and routines to ensure that students are actively involved in learning (Marzano & Pickering, 2003).  In essence, they use management not to control student behavior, but to influence and direct it in a constructive manner to set the stage for instruction (McLeod, Fisher, & Hoover, 2003)
  7.  Classroom Organization • Focuses on the physical environment. Effective teachers organize a safe classroom environment for the learners. Classroom management and Classroom organization are intertwined. While rules and routines influence student behavior, classroom organization affects the physical elements of the classroom, making it a more productive environment for its users.  They strategically place furniture and learning materials in learning centers, in order to optimize student learning and reduce distractions.
  8.  Effective teachers know that student behavior is not only about rules and consequences (Woolfolk- Hoy & McLeod,2003). They also know that a larger component is the development of a classroom climate that influences how students perceive their environment and behave. Thus, effective teachers expect students to act in a manner that contributes to a positive classroom environment.
