This model shows how to create an environment where students are the driving force in their learning and work habits. Teachers become more than a factotum; they become observers and facilitators for student achievement. Students receive minimal direct instruction and ongoing feedback through continuous formative assessments. As students use personalized learning and activity choice, they practice managing their time. A weekly work contract helps them to remain accountable to the teacher and to learn self-accountability. Students set daily goals and work in small groups or independently. This enables the teacher to have time to move throughout the room to observe or to work in small groups providing that ongoing formative assessment and feedback process.
