Structure of learner-centered classrooms

The curriculum for a learner-centered class is likely to be integrated thematically. After planning globally, the teacher discusses specific items to study and ways to learn content with the class before putting into motion lesson plans that form a framework to guide instruction.

The time spent on various subject areas is determined in part by how much enthusiasm is generated in the learning process. A skilled instructor can inspire interest that results in students not wanting to go to recess, lunch, or home at the end of the day. Authentic projects require the large time blocks in elementary school schedules and block scheduling in high school.
