Personalized Learning Time at Lindsay

Teacher Marla Earnest explains how students have choice over what to work on and who to work with during Personalized Learning Time.


Transcript: Marla Earnest: [...] we have personalized learning time. And during that time kids are able to work on what they need to work on, on where they know they have work to do. So that might be writing time, you might have a group of kids working on grammar. You might have a group of kids working on a slide show that they're going to present. It's very personalized at that time. During that time kids can work on their own, with a partner, they will often work in a small group. The classroom is set up for small group conversations. But you'll a lot of times see kids like, "I need to do my writing," and they'll just go and work on their writing on their own. So it flows. It's not, okay, everybody's doing silent, personalized quiet time now. It's a flow in the classroom so that kids are getting what they need.
