Interest Centres or Interest Groups

  • Interest centers and interest groups are set up so that learning experiences are directed toward a specific learner interest. Allowing students to choose a topic can be motivating to them. For example, interest centers can focus on specific math skills, such as addition, and provide activities that are high interest, such as counting jelly beans or adding the number of eyes on two aliens. In interest groups, students can work in small groups to research a math topic of interest, such as how geometry applies to architecture or how math is used in art.
