A Positive Stand on Student-Centeredness in Teaching: A Matter of Definition.
Maslow, Richard
One approach to teaching college students at San Joaquin Delta College, California, emphasizes student-centeredness. Demanding more than a non-directive approach to students, it requires that a teacher know and communicate with each and every student, putting student needs and interests first. A recent use of such an approach involved 275 students meeting twice a week for lectures and once a week in groups of 25. Practice at applying the knowledge gained from the lectures, group meetings, text, and outside readings was provided through workbook exercises. The group meetings permitted discussion of course material, but emphasized individual student awareness and expression. Tests were real learning experiences, with answer sheets providing immediate knowledge of results. (JO)
