Workshop at The Kineo School is an active time where students build their literacy and math skills through a mix of one-on-one or small group lessons, independent practice, reading, writing, and games. Students rotate through a variety of stations where they encounter work that meets their individual learning goals, often in a context specifically chosen to meet their interests and/or learning style.
Workshop allows teachers to individualize learning for each student. Students view this as a time to sharpen their existing skills and practice and learn new skills. The classroom of learners understand that each student is working on skills appropriate for their developmental and academic levels. By individualizing learning, we are able to meet kids where they are and challenge them appropriately. The fluid structure of Workshop allows for teachers to conference and hold mini-lessons with individual students or small groups of students working on similar skills.
