A LYS Teacher asks the following question:
When I’m working one-on-one with a student, am I in the Power Zone?
SC Response Here is the definition of the Power Zone: Teaching or monitoring in close proximity to one or more students.
This means that if the teacher in working one-on-one with a student, she is in the Power Zone.
If the teacher in working with a small group of students, she is in the Power Zone.
If the teacher is working the whole room during a whole group activity, she is in the Power Zone.
The only caveat is this, by definition, I could work with a single student for the entire period and be considered to be working in the Power Zone. However, every other student in my room might beg to differ. A little mobility significantly leverages the power of the Power Zone.
I hope this helps.
Think. Work. Achieve.
