How to Incorporate Student-Centered Learning In Your Classroom

A study by Gallup shows that student engagement decreases as students move further into their academic journey (Duffy, 2013). Why is that? Many reasons are cited, including emphasis on standardized testing, lack of connection between school and the real world, and lack of engagement with students’ learning styles (Busteed, 2013). How can educators and administrators work to close this gap, creating a lasting, enjoyable learning experience? Student-centered learning is one possible solution to this problem.
