Rotational Classroom Model
Each classroom is divided into several Learning Environments.
- The Community Space is where the entire class gathers for tefillah, morning meeting, class conversations and whole group instruction.
- In one corner of the room, there is a Learning Lab with computers set up for one group of students in the class.
- On the opposite side of the classroom, there is a station for Collaborative Learning.
- There are two Lead Teacher Stations, where small groups of students can gather to reinforce skills or concepts.
For the majority of the day, students rotate between working in small clusters on group projects, engaging in computer-based learning in the Learning Lab, and working independently or in small group instruction in learning spaces.
Blended learning is a proven educational approach that personalizes the learning experience for each child by “blending” traditional instruction with the best that interactive technology has to offer. By complementing face-to-face instruction with modern approaches to learning, teachers can customize lesson plans to each individual student. This approach empowers educators to track students’ progress in real-time and hone in on areas of difficulty in small, rotating groups. Class time can be utilized more efficiently with a better student-teacher ratio, regardless of class size. This model enables our students to learn at their own pace and experience instructional approaches customized to their unique learning styles, strengths, weaknesses, and academic needs.
