Workshop

Student Led Collaborative Groups

Overview

Workshop is a powerful strategy that provides students with a degree of choice in how they learn the content in a blended learning classroom. It is also a method of holding them accountable for their choices. This is important so that students learn how to manage their time and how to evaluate their learning options so that they can grow closer to taking charge of their own education.

Each day, student groups receive "tallies"--ratings for moving quickly, making smooth transitions, and employing responses that feature academic vocabulary and professionalism. These tallies are used to determine the order in which student groups select their blended learning stations on the following day.
