When I was student teaching, one of the teachers I worked under used a "workshop" that she learned about during her teaching time at a Catholic school. She kind of explained it to me and basically all I got out of it was that it was created by a Catholic nun who believed that students learn better when they learned at their own pace. The whole set up of the "workshop" (what she called it) is there are 10 stations with worksheets in them. When the students finish their regular work, instead of asking what to do next or sitting there idly, they would start on Workshop #1 on their own time. As they finished #1, they would go onto #2 and so forth. Every day she would switch out the papers (other than the handwriting practice sheets) and her students basically got every single subject through the workshop. So has anyone heard of this to where I can Google it and read more about it?
