In a student centered classroom the instruction command changes from
“Do-As-I-Say” to “Lets See How We Can Do This” where the solutions are
brought forward together and not just by the teacher. Allowing students
to share and have a voice in what, how and why of the classroom
activities give them a sense of responsibility and authority over their
learning which again is a good thing. Student-centered classrooms
include students in planning, implementation, and assessments. Involving
the learners in these decisions will place more work on them, which can
be a good thing.
